"Colorado National Parks" celebrates and represents the state’s vastly different park landscapes that include dunes, deserts, canyons and mountains, while also embarking on historical, educational, and recreational facts. The exhibit highlights important National Park themes that are most pertinent to each park, while simultaneously imbuing a sense of wonder and exploration. The exhibit also includes DEN Experience photo stations of National Park mural-scale photographs for travelers to capture scenic selfies on the go.
About the Artist
Participating exhibitors: Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, Great Sand Dunes and Preserve, Mesa Verde National Park, and Rocky Mountain National Park.
DEN’s Art and Culture Program administers the City and County of Denver’s “one percent for art” ordinance which enhances public places and features nearly 40 site-specific works including sculptures, murals and other installations. The pieces are displayed in outdoor landscapes, inside Jeppesen Terminal and on airport concourses, as well as in the train tunnels and on the train itself. In addition to its permanent art collection, DEN curates temporary exhibitions, collaborating with museums, cultural institutions and arts organizations to present the highest quality two- and three-dimensional work.
