DEN Welcomes New Art Exhibit: Colfax Avenue: The Longest Continuous Street in the USA

Home

DENVER – April 15, 2019 – The newest exhibition at Denver International Airport (DEN) presents a piece of Colorado history worth bragging about – Colfax Avenue.

The Colfax Avenue: The Longest Continuous Street in the USA exhibit will be on display through June 2019. It is located on Ansbacher Hall in the Jeppesen Terminal, Level 6 North, before A Bridge Security. Historical and modern artifacts in the exhibit tell just a portion of the Colfax Avenue story. If only the featured neon signs, murals, old road signs and photographs could talk.

A cruise through the Colfax Avenue: The Longest Continuous Street in the USA exhibit highlights those who share its history and its long-standing grit and reputation as one of the most notorious roadways in America. The exhibit also gives accolades to those who have worked to preserve its history.
