So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Art installation

Part of the construction project that I'm working on/for includes a $6 million art program. It is so exciting to watch the installation of these artworks. There are going to be 20-foot diameter medallions at each gate house (where you get on board your planes or disembark from them on the concourse). This is the first to be installed. All of these were created by local DFW artists. This is the first one to be installed. It is a mosaic designed to resemble Cypress Trees. The installation is done by people from Italy and Germany. It is very neat to watch them place the floor. I can't believe people are going to be walking on it. Other art projects include sculptures, paintings and more medallions as well as the terrazo floors in our automated people mover stations. It is such an exciting project to be a part off.

Here is a picture of the guys working on the floor and a closer picture of the medallion itself. It is beautiful.

    How in the WOILD did I find your blog? The wonders of Google: "Dallas Mosaic Medallions"

    I'm one of the artists fabricating one of those medallions you love. And I'm inviting you for a field trip this week - heck, you can even bring the kids.

    We're fabricating in Dallas, and I'll be finished this week: see the process at

    Send me an e-mail if you'd like to come by for a tour.

    That is awesome that you found the site. So cool to have one of the artists email me. It is a great program and I'm so excited to be a part of it. Thanks for inviting me out to watch things at work. I'll email you most certainly.
