One Bounce, Two Bounce

Location: on the north and south walls of the FIS building's baggage hall at George Bush Intercontinental Airport

The 48 circular designs in these two long murals were inspired by the aviation industry, the City of Houston and from many other artistic sources.

Their size, simplicity, and color are meant to engage the passerby, to work with the immense scale of the baggage hall, and to reflect the vibrancy and diversity of the City of Houston.
