Description

From a series of seven acrylic paintings entitled "Florida Envelope Series", Miles Batt exercised his artistic license of assimilating different styles of painting used in this series. Here, he is bowing to Paul Klee in this whimsical rendering of sailing as a sport and a multi-billion dollar industry. The artwork is installed at the south end of the Departure level of Terminal 3.
