When entering and leaving Denver International Airport, it's hard to miss Mustang. The 32-foot tall bright blue fiberglass horse with the glowing red eyes stands at the center of the arrivals/departures loop. Mustang is the final work by southwestern sculptor Luis Jimenez, who was nearly finished with the commission when the torso fell off the unfinished sculpture and crushed him to death in 2006. Mustang was later finished by other sculptors and moved to its home at the airport. Though Mustang is sometimes referred to by detractors as the Demon Horse of DIA, the statue is definitely one of Denver's defining sites. -Sabrina Zirakzadeh

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area.

Big Boots is exactly what you would expect from the name; a wrought metal statue of a pair of seven foot tall cowboy boots. The statue draws inspiration from Native American rug designers, Mexican Pitiado patterns, Pueblo Deco architecture of the 1930's and Gene Autry's stage wear. Located in the RTD parking lot, the statue can be a bit hard to find from a distance but is lovely to examine up close.
