Upon boarding Delta Air Lines 767 you'll find its tray tables turned into works of art that "celebrates themes of optimism, travel, refreshment, and happiness." In cooperation with the Coca-Cola Company, Delta invited 12 artists around the world to showcase their works 35,000 feet above the ground.

Each artist delivers their unique style while drawing up inspiration from famous tourists destinations like Amsterdam, Atlanta, London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Paris, Sao Paulo, Seattle, Seoul, Shanghai, and Tokyo, according to Cross Roads Today. However, if one can't board to Delta 767, you can find the airlines' tray tables on display at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport between gates A15 and A11.

The airport, being the busiest one in the US, was chosen because of foot traffic, making it more visible to the public. Moreover, the exhibit will feature video footages and behind the scenes works of artists painting the tray tables.

Among the featured works are the Amsterdam Dutch waffles and bicyclists in a flower-lined street by Sac Magique, to which the artist's attributes to the city he loves in a more quirky manner. Meanwhile, Skip Hursch painted themes about Central American textile design with a contemporary touch and stroke alluding to Mexico City.

The Parisian night was captured by James R. Eads in a swirling, effervescent night a little bit reminiscent of Van Gogh's Starry Night. Also, the Hollywood Boulevard work by Stevie Gee got its spot in the airlines' tray tables where they are contrasted with average people walking on the stars of the boulevard.

Three Asian countries also made it among the 12 artists. Yulia Brodskaya crafted Seoul's food culture with paper, with Ping Zhu depicting Shanghai street markets and Paola Gracey who painted Tokyo, Japan famous lights and neon signs.

Even Atlanta's very own painting made it in the 12 displays with Delta's creative department designer Adam Pinsley and contributed it to Coca-Cola and Delta.
