Texas artist Dixie Friend Gay has done her part to make airports a calmer placeâ€¦ one mosaic at a time. Airports across the country have commissioned her to install public artworks in an effort to enhance the experience of travel. Drawing inspiration from nature, her large-scale airport installations celebrate each cityâ€™s unique and natural beauty.
Robert Silvers invented the Photomosaic process while he was a student at MIT, a process by which he takes individual pieces of art and puts them together to create one image.
For this project, he partnered with McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas and the local school system to create an installation of 10 large-scale mosaics.
