John E. Rodstrom, Jr., Broward County Mayor
The floors, walls, even the ceilings of Port Everglades and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) will soon be transformed into works of art for the millions of passengers travelling to and from Broward County each year. Broward Commissioners approved the expenditure of more than $1.1 million dollars for the projects.
In Terminal 4, artist Brad Goldberg used the flow of ocean waves and the iconic curvy walls of Fort Lauderdale beach as the concept behind the terrazzo floor design. The project will cover 80,000 feet in the concourse area and 560 feet in the new corridor that will connect to Terminal 3.
Interactive Walkway Art Project in T4
An interactive walkway art project, designed by artist Cameron McNall, will use powerful color changing LED lights to illuminate glass walls with moving patterns that animate in response to the movement of people. Artists Brad Goldberg and Cameron McNall collaborated to ensure that the floor design complemented the interactive walkway art, since both are located in the same terminal.
Design Proposal for Terminal 3
Terminal 3 is getting a new terrazzo floor, designed by artists David Griggs and Scott Parsons. As airline passengers encounter the floor, a sense of mystery is enhanced through its scale and abstraction. In one area a school of hammerhead sharks pass silently through a cloud of dark blue waters, provoking a sense of beauty and the unknown. Starfish and stars appear together in reference to John Steinbeck’s writing from the Sea of Cortez. The design strives to evoke our comings and goings, affirmed by a painted sunset across the vast horizon of space and time.

Key Limed, Oil on Canvas- Artist, Janet Onofrey
Janet Onofrey’s artwork is on display in an exhibition entitled Unseen at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. The exhibition, at the Lee Wagener Art Gallery, Terminal 2, Departure Level, will run through July 8, 2012.
About the exhibition, Onofrey says, “We live in a time and culture where millions of images bombard our senses at incredible speeds relentlessly. There are things we don’t see, even when we are looking straight at them, and other things we stare at obsessively, so that we are blind to everything else. Such is human nature. My Unseen body of work questions what we prefer to see, that which is taken for granted, and the passage of time.”
Janet Onofrey is an accomplished artist whose work has been juried into national exhibitions such as the American Impressionist Society and American Women Artists. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America and Plein Air Florida. Onofrey lives in Fort Lauderdale and teaches art privately and is an adjunct professor at Broward College and Nova Southeastern University.
