Hartsfield-Jackson unveils Global Youth Murals exhibition

Atlanta, GA--  (submitted by Atlanta Airport)  Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport officials joined Mary Eisenhower, president and CEO of People to People International (PTPI) and granddaughter of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower, today in unveiling the Global Youth Murals exhibition. The exhibit on Concourse E is a partnership among Hartsfield-Jackson’s Airport Art Program, PTPI and the Colorful Arts Society (CAS).

“The Global Youth Murals exhibition is an exciting chance for the Airport Art Program to share the work of children from all over the world,” said Katherine Marbury, Airport Art Program manager. “It is a wonderful companion to our Youth Art Galleries, and we hope passengers find both the artwork and the message behind it meaningful as they go about their holiday travel.”

The Global Youth Murals exhibit, which consists of 15 murals created by students in 13 countries, was organized by PTPI’s Atlanta Chapter and the CAS. It is designed to expand awareness of People to People International and to enable people to enjoy artwork by young people from places such as Bulgaria, Denmark, Malta, Pakistan and Ukraine.

“I cannot think of a more perfect place for these beautiful murals to be displayed,” Eisenhower said. “It is a remarkable opportunity to increase exposure to these expressions of peace and community.”

The exhibit will run through the end of the year.
