Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Love "Mustang," the blue horse that stands guard outside of Denver International Airport? Loathe it? Tell DIA officials all about it tonight, when the airport and Arts & Venues Denver host a DIA Art Master Plan town-hall meeting at Crossroads Theater, 2590 Washington Street, from 5 to 7 p.m.

News of the meeting prompted this response from Colorado MMJ patient:

Between that horse and that stormtrooper mural, DIA has some scary artwork. Everyone I pick up and take to the airport from out of town comments on that Mustang. Why it has glowing red eyes is beyond me.

They should paint a Broncos jersey on it.

What's the scariest art out at DIA? We have a few nominations in this list of the airport artwork that inspired conspiracy theories; post your own suggestions below.
