A new art display at the Colorado Springs Airport to be dedicated today will serve as a reminder that Colorado Springs is home to the state's top man-made tourist attraction — the Air Force Academy Cadet Chapel.
But the artwork goes way beyond the chapel to highlight the components of the academy that form its core pillars: academics, athletics, military, leadership, character and airmanship.
A ribbon-cutting will be staged today at 3:30 p.m. Academy Superintendent Lt. Gen. Mike Gould and Springs Mayor Steve Bach will deliver remarks.
The concept and final design were created during 2012 through joint efforts of academy leadership and airport staff. The design is part of an ongoing program to improve the terminal.
