Students installing mini sculpture park at the Jacksonville International AirportThe University of North Florida’s Department of Art and Design Sculpture Program is the featured exhibitor in the Sky Gallery at Jacksonville International Airport, through April 30, 2024.   

Multiple sculptures created by approximately 20 UNF students have been on display since Feb. 2 in the Sky Gallery, along with posters featuring maquettes – small models – of this year’s large-scale student sculptures currently on exhibit at the UNF Seaside Sculpture Park located at 480 First Street South in Jacksonville Beach, as well as those from 2023.   

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to present their pieces of art for public enjoyment,” said Aisling McDonald, instructor at UNF’s Sculpture Program. “The sculptures help build an appreciation of art as well as foster creative and critical thought.”  

The Sky Gallery is one of two areas located pre-security and is next to the Haskell Gallery in the central courtyard. The Gallery is open to the public every day from 5 a.m. to 12 a.m.  

Sculptures from last year’s exhibition at the UNF Seaside Sculpture Park are currently being auctioned off with proceeds benefitting the UNF Sculpture Program.
