A bit of local lure goes national with Hyperallergic's recent piece on DIA. The airport is considering getting rid of the maintenance-heavy Interior Garden,
which is a great excuse to bring up the old trope about aliens and Satan-worshippers being part of DIA's grand plan. Again.
There is good info about the endangered pice:
"The airport’s art has been in the news recently because an installation by Michael Singer
, “Interior Garden” (1995) — commissioned for the opening of the airport itself — was flagged by management
as an expensive liability. This led to outcry against the proposed deaccessioning
of the work, with the public weighing in
on the piece’s value for the airport and the city."
And some nonsense, that's always worth repeating, probably because nothing more interesting ever really happens at DIA:
"Conspiratorial “experts” like Jay Weidner
assert that the airport’s murals and capstone prove
the existence of a secret government plan for a “New World Order.” Others implicate
the airport in the murder of JonBenét Ramsey. One local Evangelical Christian group, Cephas Ministries
that the DIA was built as part of a plot to murder the “people that Lucifer hates.”
