‘Todd Van Fleet – Bicycle Landscapes’ Take a Ride at Denver International Airport

Home

DENVER – May 8, 2017 – Denver International Airport (DEN) has rolled out a new exhibit highlighting the true vibrancy of Colorado’s landscapes enhanced by vintage bicycles. The large-scale colorful landscape photos are located at the ‘Y-Juncture Gallery’ past the A-security checkpoint through September 2017.

‘Todd Van Fleet – Bicycle Landscapes’ tells the story of how riding a bike means freedom and relaxation at whatever oasis you pedal off to. It also highlights the true vibrancy of how landscapes and bicycles can interact together to show the connection between humans and the natural world. The photographs feature 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. Van Fleet is known to strap bikes to his back and hike to remote Colorado sites to give each bike a new life and narrative within each scene.

About the Artist

Todd Van Fleet earned his degree in Fine Arts in Illustration from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in 1998, and has since worked in advertising as an Art Director and Photographer.

For the past ten years Van Fleet has been creating bicycle landscapes and rescues old cruiser bikes from the corners of barns, sheds and junk yards. He frequently exhibits his work in Colorado and the region. In 2015 Van Fleet did photographic and video work in Uganda, Africa for Musana Community Development.
