"Mustang," Luis Jimenez's giant blue horse with the glowing red eyes, was installed outside of Denver International Airport on February 11, 2008. Neigh-sayers started complaining almost immediately, demanding that the city put the horse out to pasture. But city officials responded that according to Denver public-art policy, a piece had to be in place for five years before there could be any consideration of moving it.
Now that five-year mark is coming up, as this week's Westword cover story reveals. But in the meantime, many Denver residents have grown to love the horse. And everyone has something to say about it.
