Fresh solar system themed art at St. Louis Airport

A fresh new piece of art at St. Louis Lambert International Airport explores and celebrates the mysteries of the solar system.

Created by artist Eric Woods, owner and founder of The Firecracker Press, The Solar System Series, is on  display at STL near the Terminal 1 A Gates entrance/exit.

This multi-paneled work is letterpress printed on paper, from hand-carved woodcuts and other recycled materials, including cardboard and vinyl siding. Each panel was printed individually and then pieced together and mounted on wood.

Hidden in the piece are all sorts of “Easter eggs” to look for, including the Starship Enterprise and a lost satellite.

Like the looks of this artwork? On the Firecracker Press website I see that they sell Solar System Prints (Gemini is my favorite), posters, journals, cards and more.
