Apparently, size matters in Denver art

We like things big in the West -- and that's true when it comes to art, too, as the just-posted YouTube video demonstrates. The montage spotlights the big Borofksy dancers at the DCPA, the big Blue Bear at the convention center, the big red chair with horse and the big broom and dustpan at the Denver Art Museum, plus such lesser-known artistic marvels as a big muffler man and a big bee. Does this mean we're insecure? Hell, no! We'll show you ours if you show us yours!
