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.
