Haunted Sculpture Arrives at DIA. Flyers, Rejoice!
The enormous “Mustang” sculpture finally made its way to the ground of Denver International Airport yesterday, only fourteen years past deadline. Crews installed the 32-foot fiberglass horse where Pena Boulevard splits south of the main terminal. The rearing beast comes complete with an astounding back story sure to secure a position as one of the most morbid works of public art in Colorado. It literally killed its creator, nationally renown sculptor Luis Jimenez, and is believed by some in his New Mexico town to be haunted. To check out Westword’s past coverage of the Mustang saga, and that of other strange public art at DIA, go here, here, and here. –- Jared Jacang Maher
