Even before Denver International Airport opened in 1995, conspiracy theories about the new facility were taking off — and thanks to social media, they've really flown over the past twenty years. Now airport officials are making lemonade out of those lemons, with Conspiracy Theories Uncovered, an exhibit that opened Monday and runs through the end of the month. Along with its roles as a future concentration camp/current home for Martians, DIA is also known for its public art, much of which has inspired conspiracy theories. In fact, Jared Jacang Maher suggests that the conspiracy theories might be Denver's greatest public art.
