MIAMI (AP) -- Miami International Airport has three new art installations.
Air Chair is a construction of a discarded wheelchair, steel and wood materials that floats above passengers. New York artist Paul Villinski was inspired by the wheel-chair bound men he saw during his frequent jogs near two Veteran Affairs hospitals on Roosevelt Island.
Roberto Juarez' MIA Flower Fence is a painted mural that juxtaposes botanical-style renderings of Florida's wildflowers with the geometric patchwork designs of Florida's Miccosukee Tribe of Indians.
Hortensia is two kaleidoscopic mixed-media murals by local artist Aramis O'Reilly.
