“Japanese Gardens” Photography on Display at Denver International Airport

Home

DENVER, CO — May 30, 2013 — Japanese Gardens, a new temporary art exhibit, is now on display near International U.S. Customs Arrivals on level 5 of Jeppesen Terminal. Travelers will experience an exhibition of 12 photographs, taken by Boulder artist William Corey (1949 – 2008). Images are from Kyoto City and Yamagata prefecture, the sister state of Colorado.

“We hope this exhibition will act as an introduction to the beauty of the Asian landscape and inspire more people to fly United Airlines’ nonstop flight between Denver and Tokyo, which begins June 10,” said Kim Day, Manager of Aviation at Denver International Airport. “At the same time we expect it will provide a warm and comfortable welcome to our new visitors from Japan.”

The artwork is sponsored by Hitachi Consulting and supported by The Consulate-General of Japan in Denver, Japan America Society of Colorado and Photo Craft Imaging. Japanese Gardens will be on display through December 2013 while Spirit of the People is temporarily removed from that location for conservation and cleaning.
