FedEx Office recently celebrated the official unveiling of a new visual centerpiece at its Plano corporate campus. The work is a high-resolution photograph of an original mosaic titled “Nebula Chroma,” created by Dallas native and award-winning artist Sonia King.
FedEx Office welcomed approximately 1,200 employees to its new corporate campus last fall after consolidating two locations. Company officials wanted contemplative, culturally stimulating modern artwork displayed throughout the campus. The four-story mosaic serves as the headquarters’ focal point. Spanning all four floors of the campus’ open entrance, it commemorates important company milestones using FedEx brand colors.
“I believe art plays an important role in the workplace, and I am thrilled to have my work on display at a company that continues to be committed to North Texas,” King said. “As an artist and small business owner, I consider FedEx Office as a trusted partner for years in helping me in the development phase of my creative process. FedEx Office reimagined ‘Nebula Chroma’ in a visionary way that I never thought would be possible.”
15 photographs of 24 x 24 inch sections of the original were used to create an enlarged, high-resolution image that now stretches 38 feet by 16 feet. The art was then sectioned into five panels printed and cut to size.
“Sonia King’s mosaic image is a meaningful part of our new campus,” said Brian Philips, president and chief executive officer, FedEx Office. “It allows us to tell our corporate story in a new way.”
