Terminal Kings, a new art project commissioned by the Denver International Airport's Art and Culture Program, is taking off this week, as world-class street artists Sam Flores, David Choe and Highraff work on giant murals -- each 100'x8', painted in panels -- that will be used as construction barricades at DIA over the next five years as the South Terminal expansion progresses. The artists gathered at City Hall Amphitheater last night to continue working on the murals; their creation will be accompanied by ten days and nights of art, music and performance starting on January 12.
Here's a look at the start of the art:
The exhibit opens to the public Thursday, January 12 at City Hall, where it will be on view from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. daily through January 21. For more information on Street Kings, go to www.terminalkings.com.
