The Art and Culture Program at Denver International Airport (DIA) presents its newest temporary art exhibition, The Magic of Glass. The exhibition opens April 24 and will be on display through August in Ansbacher Hall, the main walkway which connects Jeppesen Terminal to A Gates. The Magic of Glass includes more than 60 glass objects and also educates airport visitors about various glass-making techniques and processes.
The exhibit is a display of fine contemporary glass art by 31 local, national and international artists who were selected based on their expertise and experience working with the medium. Their distinctive styles and diverse talents illustrate the various aesthetic possibilities of this art form and the vast number of techniques used to create these extraordinary works of art. This exhibition was curated in partnership with PISMO Fine Art Glass in Denver.
“We believe airport visitors will take special interest in this exhibition because of its beauty, and this exhibit will coincide with the Denver Botanic Garden’s outdoor exhibition of Dale Chihuly’s glass sculpture, opening in June,” said Chris Stevens, manager of DIA’s Art and Culture Program. “Their exhibit promises to bring many glass art enthusiasts through the doors of the airport because it will be the first outdoor installation by the renowned artist in the Rocky Mountain Region. "The Magic of Glass" display at DIA is meant to enhance the awareness of this art form for art enthusiasts and casual observers alike.”
