Dance! Don't Walk, 2005

Linda Guy Image

DESCRIPTION: (20-foot diameter) This circular floor medallion is located along the Departure Level Concourse.

"In designing Dance! Dont Walk, I wanted to create an active image that would instantly engage those walking across it. I wanted to provide an imaginary distraction, making people think about doing something liberating and entertaining. As weary travelers walk across the medallion they might momentarily join the two business people dancing, throwing their briefcases away, enjoying the sense of freedom that air travel can bring."

BIOGRAPHY: Guy received a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida and an MFA in printmaking from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore. The artist was reared in Tampa, Florida and was influenced by the international flavor that this port town offered in the 1950s. At that time, Cuban factories that made cigars and boats that imported bananas could be experienced alongside communities of expatriates from Cuba and Spain. Guy’s quest for travel has taken her several times to Spain, Japan, Mexico and Peru. These international experiences have been influential in her work and resulted in several international exhibitions of her prints. The artist’s work can be found in the collections of Universidad Nacional Mayor de san Marcos, Lima, Peru; Texas Christian University, Fort Worth; private and corporate collections in Nagaoka, Japan; Newport Visual Arts Center, Newport, Oregon; Oklahoma State University, Stillwater; and the Landscape Conference Center, Washington, D.C. Guy currently resides in Fort Worth, Texas.
