A Travelling Treat Through the ‘Colorado Scenic & Historic Byways’ Exhibit at Denver International Airport
DENVER – May 14, 2018 – Denver International Airport (DEN) is proud to show off Colorado’s 26 Scenic and Historic Byways in the newest art exhibit featuring breathtaking color photography of several unique, majestic and rare Colorado locations. The exhibit is located at the ‘Y-Juncture Gallery’ past the A-security checkpoint through October 2018.
Journey through the photographic collection to see such locations as Rattlesnake Arches Trail, the Steel Bridge on Phantom Canyon Road or the highest paved road in north America, to name a few. The exhibit represents each of the byways located in 48 of Colorado’s 65 counties, 11 of which are nationally recognized for their outstanding scenic and historic attributions. Colorado has the most designated byways in the U.S. so this venturesome exhibit along highways and backroads reveals more than just suggested road trips. It’s a true Colorado experience.
