Arts at the Airport

Arts at the Airport



Created in 1988 by the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority (MNAA), Arts at the Airport is an ever-growing, ever-changing showcase of cultural diversity and creative talent in Tennessee. The terminal and surrounding facilities at Nashville International Airport (BNA) were designed to incorporate rotating public art exhibits and permanent acquisitions.

Arts at the Airport is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is supported largely by BNA and through grants from the Metro Nashville Arts Commission and the Tennessee Arts Commission.

Arts at the Airport is not limited to visual art. Because music is an integral part of Nashville, musical performances are located on stages in the passenger terminal. Performances feature a variety of musical styles including traditional and contemporary country, rhythm and blues, jazz, pop, gospel and bluegrass. The stages are located near the A/B Waiting Lounge, the C/D Waiting Lounge and in the Concourse C Food Court (beyond security).

The Arts at the Airport Foundation enjoys a working relationship with, or receives funding from, the following arts-related organizations.
Metro Arts Commission –
National Endowment for the Arts –
Now Playing Nashville –​
