Denver International Airport in Colorado has unveiled its latest art exhibition to feature in the Jeppesen Terminal’s Ansbacher Hall and Terminal Gallery.

‘Arts of Jomon’ will showcase contemporary art pieces themed around Japan’s Neolithic period known as the Jomon era, which lasted around 10,000 years from approximately 10,500 BCE to 300 BCE.

Curated by renowned artist Taketo Kobayashi, the exhibition will run throughout November 2015 and features artwork in a variety of mediums including clay, 3D printing and acrylic painting. Viewers will also be encouraged to notice the similarities between the Jomon era and Denver’s own Native American culture.

Kobayashi said, “Although Jomon is a Japanese culture, this is also a universal message of peace for all the world. This culture lasted such a long time because it was based on sharing and tolerance.”
