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.

PAVIX: Proven Winner for All Airport Concrete Infrastructure

PAVIX: Proven Winner for All Airport Concrete Infrastructure

International Chem-Crete Corporation (ICC) manufactures and sells PAVIX, a unique line of crystalline waterproofing products that penetrate into the surface of cured concrete to fill and seal pores and capillary voids, creating a long lasting protective zone within the concrete substrate.

Once concrete is treated, water is prevented from penetrating through this protective zone and causing associated damage, such as freeze-thaw cracking, reinforcing steel corrosion, chloride ion penetration, and ASR related cracking.

This white paper discusses how the PAVIX CCC100 technolgy works and its applications.
