LGB Coloring Sheet Art Contest

This contest has ended - Here are the winners

Long Beach Airport (LGB) is calling on local artists to take part in a “Plane to See” aviation-themed design contest, where 10 selected winners’ drawings will earn $500 honorariums and be used to create coloring sheets for travelers of all ages.

In collaboration with the Arts Council for Long Beach, LGB is looking to update, diversify and localize its coloring sheets with uplifting illustrations of the airport, its history, famous aviators, women in aviation, airplanes and air travel in the modern age.

Selected drawings will be printed and distributed at community events and at LGB to travelers of all ages with a designated exhibition space and coloring area, post-security, to be established in the North Concourse. The images also will be available to download online.
