Blue mustang statue outside DIA has cracks

DENVER – “Bluecifer” is showing cracks. The large blue mustang statue outside Denver’s airport is showing signs of wear just two years after it was installed.

The statue “Mustang” provokes strong feelings from travelers at Denver International Airport. Many hate the statue dubbed “Bluecifer” for its menacing stare – but city regulations require public art installations to stay put for at least five years.

But now “Mustang” is showing cracks on its legs. The cracks have been repaired with caulk and paint.

City officials say the cracks aren’t unexpected because the status is outside. City officials say there are no underlying structural problem with the statue by Luis Jimenez, who was killed in 2006 when “Mustang” fell on him.
