Artist Cathey Billian designed a multi-media sculpture that is suspended from the ceiling of the atrium lobby at Deer Valley Airport.  The intent of the sculpture  is to create a sequence of overhead visual events that excerpt geologic features and atmospheric effects that typify the State of Arizona.  Materials used in the sculpture include native copper with characteristic eroded edges and specially manufactured cobalt blue light fixtures that reference runway patterns at night.  The work is a comment on the ascending and descending experiences associated  with flying and the relationship between structure and technology as it is set against the natural environment that surround the Deer Valley Area.
