SANTA ANA, Calif. - A selection of works from artist Frank Ritenour are being featured in John Wayne Airport's (JWA) Community Focus Space Program and will be on display through July 18, 2011.

"We, here in Southern California, are so lucky to have so much beauty all around. All it takes is to carve out a few moments from your busy schedule to pause and see it," says Ritenour. "Once you see it, the next challenge is to photograph it - or capture the moment."

Ritenour was born in western Pennsylvania and started photography as a teenager. Initial careers in computer science, networking and telecommunications were balanced with his love of the arts. He has traveled throughout the USA, Europe and Asia and enjoyed photographing all. He and his wife Marlene live in San Clemente with their two daughters and their families close by.

Ritenour's art work will be displayed on the Departure (upper) Level near the security screening checkpoints and on the Arrival (lower) Level near baggage carousels 1 and 4.
