‘Mo’PRINT 2016: A Century of Printmaking in Colorado’ Arrives at Denver International Airport

Home

DENVER – March 21, 2016 – Denver International Airport’s (DEN) Arts and Culture program will host a new exhibit, ‘Mo’PRINT 2016: A Century of Printmaking in Colorado,’ from March through July 2016. The art exhibit, which can be seen at the southeast end of the Jeppesen Terminal on Level 5, illustrates the contributions made by various Colorado printmaking institutions and individual artists over the last 100 years.

Mo’PRINT, or “Month of Printmaking,” is a biannual Colorado Front Range celebration designed to inspire, educate and promote awareness about the art of making original prints. A variety of public events will be held throughout March in galleries, museums and other venues. The exhibit was curated by Leon Loughridge, a woodblock printmaker, avid print collector and historian. The show features prints, many form Loughbridge’s own collection, by renowned artists such as Vance Kirkland, Red Grooms, and Melanie Yazzie.
