Broward County Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL), in partnership with Broward’s Culture Division, is proud to announce the inaugural Terminal 2 Art Gallery exhibit titled “Through New Eyes” by local artist Nava Lundy. Lundy is a nationally recognized artist, best known for her series of large-scale paintings of Muses, who are poetically inspired Greek goddesses, featuring strong, intriguing and captivating women, and more recently for her hyper colorful paintings of animals.

Located after security, the Terminal 2 Art Gallery features a series of animal paintings in the north area and a series of muse-inspired paintings in the south gate area. The artwork, created exclusively for this exhibition, is layered with nuanced colors and textures. In addition, a three-dimensional element gives it a feeling of tactile energy.

“Lundy’s exhibit brings a sense of joy and excitement to the space with its vibrant colors and themes accessible to all age groups,” said Phil Dunlap, director of Broward’s cultural division. “The rotating nature of these exhibitions will also provide a dynamic program showcasing our local talents, which we hope passengers and employees alike will enjoy for years to come.”

“What a great way to celebrate the New Year with the opening of this magnificent gallery in the newly renovated Terminal 2,” said Mark Gale, CEO / Aviation Director of FLL. “We hope that these exhibits will allow passengers to experience the cultural richness of our community while promoting our local artists by sharing their work with hundreds of thousands of passengers.”

Broward County resident, wife and mother of three, Lundy paints in her studio in Parkland, Florida. She received national recognition when immediately after Parkland’s mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, she tried to comfort her 17 grieving neighbors by painting and donating portraits of loved ones.

Since 2009, FLL has dedicated a space in Terminal 2 to showcase and promote the work of local artists. To date, nearly 20 artists have had solo exhibitions. The Terminal 2 art gallery, completed in December, will rotate exhibitions every six months, and Broward artists, palm beach and Miami-Dade counties are eligible to participate.

“Through New Eyes” is a collaborative exhibition presented by FLL and the Public Art & Design program of the Cultural Division.
