Reader: New DIA art could represent the Antichrist
When the leaky "Mountain Mirage" water feature was removed from the middle of the terminal floor at Denver International Airport, it left a big gap -- a gap that was filled by a new piece by Juane Quick-to-See Smith and Ken Iwamasa, who had a commission to design the original Great Hall Floor before DIA opening in 1995.
