Great Hall / Jeppesen Terminal Project (Denver International Airport)

Denver, Colorado

Summary: The selection panel members have set forth goals and parameters for this public art project with the hope of creating a unique and engaging work of art. The airport isn’t simply looking to add another piece of beautiful art – rather it’s looking to provide something memorable that expresses the brand and personality of the airport and it’s bold and unexpected art collection. DEN has a long history of controversy and conspiracy theories and embraces the mystique and humor that corresponds. Selected finalists will be asked to propose artwork that can serve as a statement piece(s) that passengers will know by name. The selection panel seeks a pool of applicants with a successful history of public art.

Budget: The budget for this commission is up to $4,000,000 USD. The intent is to select one artist/artist team only for the full commission

Deadline: Oct. 1, 2018

How to apply: CaFÉ™

Eligibility Requirements: This project is open internationally to all artists and multi-person collaborative groups, regardless of race, color, creed, gender, gender variance, national origin, age, religion, marital status, political opinion or affiliation, or mental or physical handicap.

Special Notes:

Unique Challenges and Site Considerations

  • Travelers will need to maintain visibility of all way finding signage, artwork can not hinder sight lines or take up too much floor space so as to negatively hinder passenger flow.
  • Every passenger departing DEN will pass through this site.
  • Artwork must consider both natural and artificial lighting.
  • Artwork cannot be suspended from the existing canopy.
  • Artwork cannot replace or modify existing glass curtain walls.
