"Facing the Wind’ Showcases Wild Mustangs and Burros at Denver International Airport
Denver International Airport’s (DEN) newest temporary art exhibition, Facing the Wind, showcases a series of large-scale color images of America’s wild horses and burros from 18 different photographers.
Located at the Y-Juncture Gallery past the A-security checkpoint, the exhibition is on display through March 2016.
According to Michael Golembeski, director and founder of the WindDancer Foundation, Facing the Wind will provide travelers with an opportunity to experience the wild horses that live on our public lands in 10 western states. Along with the Native Americans and the bison, the wild horse remains one of the great symbols of the American West. Always colorful characters in the wild and the object of many tales, they hold an invaluable place in the unfolding of America’s history. The WindDancer Foundation coordinated with 18 artists to create the exhibition: Katie Simpson, Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott, John Wagner, Pat Brennan, Gail deMonet, Bristol MacDonald, Mark Terrell, Lynne Pomeranz, Tony Stromberg, Lee Mitchelson, Tamara Rymer, Barbara and Marty Wheeler, Kimerlee Curyl, Lisa Dearing, Tamara Gooch and Joe Tosh.
