DENVER (KDVR) — The famous blue mustang near Denver International Airport has just become a teenager. The mustang, also known as “Blucifer”, debuted at DIA on Feb. 11, 2008.
The 32-foot sculpture was commissioned in 1992 as a part of the airport’s original public art plan.
In 1996, a piece of the sculpture fell on top of the artist, Luis Jimenez, killing him.
Jimenez’s family helped finish the fiberglass mustang. Its home is now in the median on Pena Boulevard.
