After Los Angeles-based graffiti artist David Choe finished his murals for Denver International Airport's Terminal Kings project, he did what any street artist would do: He went and found a blank wall in the city where he could leave his mark.
That wall happened to be at 13th and Champa streets, on the west-facing concrete canvas of the Temple Hoyne Buell Theatre. Click through to see some photos of the public work.
The rest of the Terminal Kings pieces, which were comissioned by Denver International Airport, will be displayed at DIA over the next five years, during the construction of the South Terminal. But you can see them from 2 to 7 p.m. today through January 21, when City Hall, 1144 Broadway, will be open as an interim gallery. And are also ticketed events at City Hall this weekend in connection with Terminal Kings; find the full schedule at www.terminalkings.com.
