In 2008, Denver International Airport commissioned a blue horse sculpture to greet travelers. The blue horse was an iconic symbol of the city and the airport wanted to incorporate it into their design. The blue horse is often called “Blucifer” by locals due to its fiery blue color and imposing stature. But not all Denverites are happy with this addition; some call it an eyesore while others love how they represent their home town.
The airport commissioned the sculpture for $650,000. It is 40 feet tall and weighs 19 tons. Some locals call it an “eyesore” while others say that this iconic symbol of Denver represents their city well. What are your thoughts? Do you think Blucifer should stay or go?
