Host to Art Basel, The Magic City is no stranger to the art scene, and Miami International Airport certainly reflects its locale’s cultural aesthetic. Stroll through an immersive rainbow of light in Christopher Janney’s "Harmonic Convergence," explore “Meltdown,” a new, permanent mural by local artist Jen Star, and check out the rotating series of exhibits, including photographer Bruce Mozert's black-and-white underwater prints near gate D-31.
