Bicycle Art Comes to Denver International Airport
With the USA Pro Challenge scheduled to roll through Colorado August 20-26, DIA, VISIT DENVER, the Convention & Visitors Bureau, and race organizers joined forces for the second year in a row to commission local artists for a temporary, sports-themed art display.
Plus Gallery’s Ivar Zeile asked prominent Denver-based artists and non-profit arts organizations to transform 13 bicycles into unique, stand-alone works of art — celebrating a selection of the teams that will compete in what is considered to be the toughest bicycle race in the United States. The art will be on display at DIA through the month of August and can be found on top of baggage carousels, located on both the east and west sides of Jeppesen Terminal (Level 5).
DIA's Facebook page has some so-so photos of the bikes. If any of the artists have better shots, send them our way and we'll add them to this post.
