St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport
The artwork is an interior wall separating the non-secure landside from the security screening area at the main entrance to the airport. The piece gives a vibrant welcome to those entering the airport and makes the security screening process more pleasant and less stressful. The terrazzo floor medallion is immediately in front of the art glass and acts as a welcome mat.
The design concept was to relate to the nearby beaches and complement the terminal's new tropical theme, geared to the tourist-driven airport. It is a seascape of blue water and sky, with yellow splashes of sun and white expressive gestures representing the wind.
The terrazzo medallion is from a scuba diver's perspective, looking up into a school of fish and rays of sun.
