Murals by Dixie Friend Gay seen at Dante B. Fascell Port of Miami, Miami - Ephemeral Everglades

Ephemeral Everglades

Ephemeral Everglades is the installation honoring the Florida Everglades and Biscayne National Park placed throughout Terminal E at Dante B Fascell Port of Miami Airport. Inspired by the hammocks, pinelands, wetlands, mangrove forests, flora, fauna, and seashores of Miami-Dade County, the installation by Dixie Friend Gay creates a journey for the traveler, transforming the entire terminal into an environment celebrating the native landscape of South Florida. She combined various materials, including digitally painted murals, hand-painted glass tiles, hand-cut glass mosaic, and etched glass. The juxtaposition of these various materials create images that are visually and intellectually stimulating.
