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

Delgado’s murals can be found at the Latino Cultural Center, Dallas; Stevens Park and Tolbert Elementary Schools, Dallas; the Dallas West Library Courtyard; the Dallas Area Rapid Transit Station; and Vickery Village/Buckner Baptist Children’s Home, Dallas.

"For many years, I have expressed concepts, sensations, emotions and opinions through the vibrant and international language of color. It is this nonverbal communication that I have used to transform an otherwise impersonal airport terminal that, when completed, springs to life simultaneously acquainting visitors with the diverse and dynamic reflection of culture in the DFW Metroplex and issuing a warm welcome back home to residents.

"In 1987, I began my devotion to studying and working in the field of art. As a child, my love of art included coloring pictures that my mother drew for me on brown paper sacks, but until 1987, I never felt that a career in art was a viable one for me. Since then, I have been diligent in my efforts to prove that, indeed, it is not only a practical career, but also the perfect career for me."

BIOGRAPHY: Born 1953 in Sinton, Texas. Delgado attended El Centro Community College, Dallas; Dallas Baptist University; and The Art League School, Alexandria, Virginia. Delgado currently resides in Dallas, Texas.
