Artist: Ráed Al-Rawi
Location: Concourse B, Gate B4
Artist Statement: “Traveling is a journey we take in our bodies and our minds. The images of flying people, animals and articles are intended to give a sense of dream-like freedom as we travel on our journeys. It’s my hope these flying scenes going in the direction of the gates will bring conversations, thoughts and humorous relief to travelers. I believe the images provide to the viewer a surreal quality and imagination to the landscape of North Carolina from the mountains in ‘Journey 1’ mural to the beaches in ‘Journey 2’ mural.”
