Um, bullshit

(or, this is what happens when there’s a forced requirement for the inclusion of art in public construction.)

DIA’s Blue Mustang (yeah, the Denver Post couldn’t even bother to look up its real name) was voted the “third most bizarre public art piece in the US.”

Blue Mustang’s not even the most bizarre public art piece at Denver International Airport.  Behold: (behind the cut due to bunches of pictures)

And then we have the non-DIA public art…

Denver has a number of pieces that are stranger than Crown Fountain or Bus Home (which doesn’t even seem to rate its own page other than that it’s a nightmare to maintain).  Sorry, but just being ugly and unmaintainable and useless doesn’t make a work of art ‘bizarre’ – it’s much better when there’s a large equine penis or a curse or a New World Order conspiracy associated with the piece.

      The Princess swears the red eyes are winking at her when we drive to the airport. She thinks Blue Mustang’s awesome.

      She thinks zombies are awesome too. She plays with my Dismember Me plushie more often than I do.

    Have you seen the gargoyly things over some of the exits at DIA? I don’t know what they were thinking.

    Wasn’t Denver where they couldn’t get its baggage carousels and conveyors to work when the airport was first built?

    Remember when “I’m from the Government and I’m here to help you” didn’t mean the same thing as “Nice little store you have here, it would be a shame if something happened to it” said by your local shakedown agent.

      The baggage carousels weren’t supposed to work, they were expecting the New World Order to take over before they had to be put into use so they’d just toss offenders down the chutes straight into the ginormous prison built underneath the airport.
