Fresh art at Miami and Denver airports

Seven Minutes in Heaven, a collection of seven quilts by textile artist Amy Vigilante, is on display through September at Miami International Airport’s Central Terminal Gallery in Concourse E, just past the security checkpoint.

Vigilante took up quilting during the hurricane season of 2004, piecing together one quilt by machine during Hurricane Charley, tying another during Hurricane Frances and starting a new quilt during Hurricane Jeanne.

To celebrate the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, which will roll through Colorado August 22 – 28, Denver International Airport is displaying bicycles that have been transformed into art by a dozen local artists.

The bikes will be on display through August. Look for them on top of baggage carousels on the east and west sides of Jeppesen Terminal (Level 5).

When the exhibition is dismantled at the end of August, the bicycle representing the U.S. will stay in Denver Airport’s permanent art collection.  The rest of the art bikes will be auctioned off to benefit local charities.
