We thought we'd start with the obvious choice and get it out of the way: the famous 'Blue Mustang' at Denver International Airport. It has to be the most controversial public art in the entire state. The artist, Luis Jimenez, was actually killed by this piece while he was working on it, but it was completed by his sons, Adan and Orion, and was installed in 2008. It's been called everything from "Bluecifer" to "Satan's Steed." EVERYONE has an opinion! And so do we. Our guest reviewer for this discussion is artist Andree Hudson, who is famous in part for her remarkable equine acrylic paintings.

Seriously is this a successful work of art? I love art that evokes a strong sense of emotion! Do I want to take a longer look as I drive by this demonic creature? Yes I think I do!
