The glass panels acting as the walls of the Departures security screening were designed by Jim Draper of Jacksonville, Florida. Draper created 3 original palm tree designs using his “Healing Palms” painting series as inspiration. The set of 48 panels provide functional art to separate the courtyard area from security screening.
The Healing Palms series is Jim Draper's best known work and came to life during visits to Cumberland Island, Georgia. The Healing Palms express the resilient nature of a palm tree and the fortitude it holds to stand against hurricanes, wind, and fire.
