The Community Focus Space Program, located on the non-secure side of the Riley Terminal next to baggage carousels in Terminal A and Terminal B, features art by Orange County artists, local community organizations, and artists with Orange County ties in solo-style exhibitions. This year-round community art space changes approximately every four to six weeks. There are also two Community Focus Space free-standing art display cases at each entry to the security screening check point areas in Terminals A, B and C.
French artist Veronica Schmitt is the newest artist featured in the Community Focus Space at John Wayne Airport. Her fine art painting is inspired by the California impressionist artists she treasured while honing her talent. Acrylic paint captures lively, soft, and colorful snapshots of local life in this exhibit. Select paintings from her catalogue will be on display in the Thomas F. Riley Terminal through October 18, 2022.
