Destination Game, 2005

Pamela Nelson Image

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

"The Destination Game uses a variation of the traditional Parcheesi game board to move the passenger to the center. The three-letter airport codes for international destinations are spaces along the way.

"DFW is the only domestic airport. The colors are bright and intense, recalling childhood board games. Children may enjoy walking the maze into the center. Adults may enjoy deciphering the airport codes.

"The Destination Game is offered to be played or to be seen as a symmetrical geometry. It is to be remembered that the essential purpose of all journeys is to eventually come home."
