“Todd Van Fleet – Bicycle Landscapes” tell the story of how landscape meets vintage bike, or as Van Fleet calls them, “Bikescapes” by featuring some of Colorado’s most beautiful areas such as Aspen, Vail, Great Sand Dunes National Park, Garden of the Gods, Kenosha Pass and Gore Range. The exhibit highlights the true vibrancy of Colorado’s landscapes that are enhanced by vintage bicycles. Van Fleet is known to strap bikes to his back and hike to far-flung lonely Colorado sites to give each bike a new life and narrative within each scene. Nearly 50 large-scale color saturated photographs done the walls at DEN as a bold and whimsical bike chronicle.
