DENVER – Nov. 28, 2018 – The newest art exhibition at Denver International Airport (DEN) presents a unique snapshot of two of Colorado’s major industries – aviation and railroad. “Colorado Trains & Planes” features an array of historical and modern artifacts that tell a visual story of the guiding industries in Colorado.

Whether built to ride on rails or soar in the sky, trains and planes have always been an awe-inspiring part of our history and lives. A journey through “Colorado Trains & Planes” highlights the long-standing role each industry has played in shaping the state’s development, including agriculture, technology and the economy. The exhibit captures the spirited ways Coloradans have embraced transport and travel with artifacts, including model airplanes and trains, provided by experts and enthusiasts from around the state.

“Colorado Trains & Planes” is located on Ansbacher Hall in the Jeppesen Terminal, Level 6 North before A Bridge Security, through February 2019. You can also see photos of the exhibition here.
