Colorscapes, an exhibition by artist Rosanna Saccoccio, recently opened at FLL’s Lee Wagener Art
Gallery. The gallery is located in Terminal 2, Departure Level. Saccoccio’s paintings include nine artworks with acrylic
on canvas. Saccoccio says, “It’s not my
intention to copy nature or to represent landscapes, but through color
and form, my intent is to express the emotion inspired by nature.”
The Lee Wagener Art Gallery offers
Broward County artists an opportunity to exhibit their work. The Broward
County Cultural Division’s Public Art & Design Program selects artists
for the gallery. The far end of the gallery contains an exhibition of
video artworks from Broward County’s permanent art collection. For additional information: Please

walking between terminals on the upper Departure level won’t have to
worry about the sun or rain soon. Crews began installing canopies between
Terminals 3 and 4 in late October to replace the original canopies that
were destroyed during Hurricane Wilma.
The photo above shows the first phase of installation. The next
phase will involve securing the fabric tightly to the steel structure.
The project involves replacing all the canopy fabric and minor structural
elements. The canopies between Terminals 2 and 3 are scheduled to be
installed before the end of the year.
For more information about the project, please contact our Airport
Development Division at 954-359-6149.
