Tidbits for travelers: fresh art at airports in Tucson and Denver

Next time you’re stuck at the airport don’t just sit there and be irritated.

Look around. It’s a fair bet you’ll find some great artwork just around the corner.

A few fresh examples:

(Terry Bustamante Idolatry)

From now through mid-August you can see work by Terry Bustamante and Jennifer Hill in an exhibit titled Exploring Other Worlds in the Upper Link Gallery at Tucson International Airport (TUS).

(Jennifer Hill: Muchacha con Mascara de Zorro)

In the Tucson airport’s Lower Link Gallery you’ll find a series of paintings  – architectural landscape interpretations – by Judith Kramer.

(Judith A Kramer: Architectural Forms Series#3)

And over at Denver International Airport (DEN) you’ll find Me Rento Para Soñar (I Rent Myself to Dream) and exhibition of paintings, engravings, sculptures, drawings, ceramics and tridimensional pieces by Mexican artist Alvaro Santiago. The work will be on display through Oct. 15 on the Mezzanine Level Gallery in A Concourse.

If you’ve got time to hang out in Denver, keep in mind that throughout July the city is hosting the 2010 Biennial of the Americas.
