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

Do you love the Denver International Airport's demon horse? Do you hate it? (Do you just want to dress up a paper doll version of it?) In this week's feature story, "Yay or Neigh," we take a look at our own feelings for the big blue beast at the perfect time to do so: the fifth anniversary of the city's most controversial piece of public art. And now it's your turn to weigh in. Let us know what you think of the "Mustang" by voting in our poll below.

Need to do more research before you decide? Read our "Mustang" cover story, or check out one Westword editor's defense of the piece. And if you need more context, compare and contrast with our list of ten other public art controversies in Colorado.

And if you're a fan, don't forget to download your own "Mustang" paper doll!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
