Artists chalk up DIA to ramp up for downtown festival

This week brought a lot of excitement about the installation of 26-foot tall statue of Anubis, Egyptian god of the dead, at Denver International Airport. But that was not the only art being installed at one of the nation's busiest air travel hubs.

About a dozen artists gathered on the ramp by the DIA Southwest Airlines gates on Wednesday, June 2, to create two original pieces of chalk art. This unusual scene was the product of a partnership between the airline and the Larimer Arts Association to promote Eighth Annual Denver Chalk Art Festival in Larimer Square.

The festival takes place on Saturday, June 5, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday, June 6, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Larimer Square, downtown Denver.
