Update from DEN: Monday morning passengers at DEN experienced significant lines across all security screening checkpoints resulting in lengthy wait times to get through security.

We’ve been in contact with local and national TSA leadership to understand what resources and staffing they had in place this morning, how the lanes were being operated, what advance planning took place, traffic projections, equipment issues and more. At the same time, we are reviewing our own operation regarding how we manage the lines outside the checkpoint. TSA and DEN continue to work together in partnership to address the challenges we are having so that we can best accommodate the numbers of passengers traveling through DEN, particularly at peak times. We are encouraged by the performance of the equipment in the new West Security Checkpoint and the vast majority of times, wait times are below 10 minutes. However, we know there was a problem during peak time on the morning of Feb. 26 and we are going to do everything we can possibly do, working with TSA and our airlines, to fix this situation. Our passengers deserve an amazing, efficient and positive travel experience and we are committed to providing just that.

About the Artist, Ned Kahn

Kahn’s kinetic work graces major private and public institutions worldwide and is the recipient of a Macarthur “Genius” Award. His past work is focused on this concept of making discreet natural forces visible through mechanics.

About Field of Air

California-based sculptor Ned Kahn has created a large wind-activated sculptural installation titled, “Field of Air.” For his artwork at DIA, Kahn was inspired by the way the grasses of the plains expose the invisible force of the wind. Each of the thousands of individual blades will be made from brushed aluminum and hinged so that the fascinating play of air on the plaza becomes a contemplative or even meditative backdrop to activity.
