Celebration, 2005

Beatrice Lebreton Image

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

"This is a celebration of the human spirit and an invitation to spread harmony all over the world. The dove, universal symbol for peace, is in the center (as in a traditional patchwork pattern) and is found again at the four cardinal points in a variation of styles: African, South American, European and Asian.

"Cultures are also represented by diverse patterns from top to bottom: Celtic, African (Kuba, Congo), Japanese (Seigaiha), Native Indian (Hohokam), and Greek.

"The world to me is like a patchwork: it needs different shapes, colors, sizes and interaction among the people to exist. If one piece is missing the unity is broken.

"I use the rich vocabulary of my blended cultural heritage, and I draw my inspiration from the wealth of traditions found in the myths of diverse societies. My quest is to weave a visual story through metaphorical use of symbols tying the past to the present. I am a storyteller whose goal is to inspire, stimulate, captivate and lift up the soul. "
