Home

DENVER – Mar. 14, 2014 – Some lucky travelers will get to watch Irish dancers in Denver International Airport’s (DIA) Jeppesen Terminal on Sunday, March 16. The Bennett School of Irish Dance will dance multiple performances between noon and 3 p.m. DIA’s Art and Culture Program is proud to present these Irish dance performances for passengers to experience the day before St. Patrick’s Day.

“Bringing in cultural performances, such as Irish dance, to the airport, is another way we can offer an international experience for the public to enjoy,” said Denver’s Manager of the Art and Culture Program Chris Stevens. “In addition to providing entertainment, we hope travelers will be inspired to visit Ireland and learn more about their culture.”

About DIA’s Art and Culture Program

DIA’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 30 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, DIA curates temporary exhibitions, collaborating with museums, cultural institutions and arts organizations to present the highest quality two- and three-dimensional work.
