Small and unusual creatures are eyeing guests in the Terminal 1 Ticketing Hall at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL). There’s a bear and dragon, but the others are purely born of local sculptor Will Rimel’s imagination.

His small case exhibit titled Funk Muffins will be on display across from the Delta Air Lines ticket counters through June 10. It’s one of nearly 30 works or collections of art currently featured at the airport.

Rimel used a foundation of polymer clay and ceramics to create a unique cast of characters with broad appeal. "Everyone can relate to toys, whether you buy them for your kids or played with them growing up," says the sculptor. "This allows the art to be disarming and approachable for all age groups and backgrounds. Even if you don’t take the time to closely examine the pieces, they are based on bright colors and toy-like features, which always engage viewers and bring a smile to their faces."

The bright, lighthearted display is part of the Lambert Art and Culture Program, which is supported by the Regional Arts Commission. For more information about STL’s art program, visit www.artoftravelstl.com.

RFID technology for tracking baggage

RFID Baggage Solutions: Let's Talk About the Facts and the Best Way Forward

RECORDED: Wednesday, October 16th, 2019 at 10:00 am EDT

Use of RFID technology for tracking baggage has evolved steadily during the past four years, deployed system-wide by a major legacy US airline, adoption at more airports, and a resounding vote of confidence at the recent IATA AGM in June, 2019. RFID was selected as the ideal technology by the IATA membership for future bag tags because it has been demonstrated to improve read rates which lead to large reductions in baggage mishandling, thereby removing lost baggage and its associated costs.

This seminar sets the record straight regarding RFID bag tags. What's true, what's not true, what are the best ways to deploy the technology, and what components are necessary. These are the issues which deserve additional clarity, and the webinar panel will address the assumptions that have been in place for years, and leave the attendee with the facts.

Mark Summers from Avery Dennison and Tom Gebler from SICK, Inc. will tackle these questions and others in: RFID Baggage Solutions: Let's Talk About the Facts and the Best Way Forward.
