Denver International Airport invites kids to "please play" -- if they know how to pick locks
A padlock kept the kids -- and adults -- from playing.
The three playhouses include an old-time mercantile, which was padlocked: What, were DIA officials worried that a couple of adults might indulge in some playtime of their own? Also on view: a mock Conestoga wagon and a Red Rocks-inspired playhouse vaguley reminiscent of an outhouse, which might explain why no kid was playing in it last night.
As DIA art goes, "Form, Fun & Function" is a pretty mild display -- especially compared to a killer horse. Still, where's the fun in a form that can't function as a playhouse when the door's locked?
