We’ve mentioned the blue “Mustang” at Denver International Airport before, but discussion about it and other supposed abnormalities have been making the rounds the last few days.
The 32-foot sculpture was commissioned three years before DIA opened and finally installed in the median of Peña Boulevard in February, 2008.  Creation of “Mustang”  survived lawsuits over the pace of the work, the illness of sculptor Luis Jimenez, and his death when a section of the sculpture came loose from a hoist and pinned him against a steel support beam.  Jimenez was 65 when he died at his Hondo, N.M., studio in June 2006.  (Photo by Helen H. Richardson, The Denver Post)
