Lists

DIA Blue Mustang only the third most bizarre piece of public art in USA? Really? (PHOTOS)

The folks at the Yahoo! travel feature Wanderlust have come up with a list of the five most bizarre public art displays in these United States, and, predictably, the Blue Mustang at Denver International Airport made the final cut. More surprisingly, it only places third. This, my friends, is a tremendous injustice, as you'll see by the images of the Wanderlust quintet we've assembled below. The only real competition is from the number one selection, which is wonderfully strange. But did it manage to kill its creator? I think not. Judge the list for yourself below.
