Small airplanes soar whimsically through the lobby of Meacham International Airport like a flock of birds.

Collective Transitions, a dramatic new artwork by artist Kipp Kobayashi, will be dedicated at 10 a.m. Oct. 20 at Meacham International Airport’s Administration Building, 201 American Concourse off of North Main Street.

Commissioned by the City of Fort Worth through the Fort Worth Public Art program,, the artwork explores the dynamics of social interaction as a result of shared physical space and common experience.

The artwork consists of 800 “paper airplanes” fabricated out of stainless steel and painted to look like folded paper. Each airplane is individually suspended from the ceiling of the three-story atrium at Meacham International Airport on fine stainless steel cables. There are five unique designs, each representing a different style of aircraft.

An artist talk with Kobayashi will precede the dedication at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 19 at ART7 Gallery, 2831 W. Seventh St. Parking in the Crockett Row/West 7th garages is free with validation by gallery staff.
