So I'm new here, and bumping an old thread, but I wanted to share my recent experiences at DIA.
I agree with almost all the comments on this thread.. this place is creepy and the people are seriously either clueless, or intentionally not
discussing anything about this place.
I stopped in earlier this month and I had a few hours layover so I started sneaking around looking behind doors, etc... you know, looking as
suspicious as possible. I'm military, and was in uniform at the time, so no one bothered me but they were watching.
What struck me as the oddest part of the whole day though were how no one seemed to know anything about the murals, or where they were in the airport.
I went to three different information kiosks and asked about the murals... All three kiosks claimed to have no knowledge of the murals. I asked the
individuals working at each booth how long they had worked at the Airport and they all indicated they had been there a while.
All three kiosks offered me a brochure which contained information on the artwork located within DIA. I went through the brochure and it did not
contain any information on the the murals or the freaky gargoyle thing in the luggage claim area.
Two of the kiosks were, amusingly enough, within stones throw of a mural. I actually pointed out one of the murals to the individuals working at an
information kiosk and they responded with a simple, "oh, that" and nothing further.
These murals are permanent fixtures at DIA. The amount of time and effort that went into these murals is nothing short of astounding and the quality
is remarkable... the artistic pieces represented in the brochures were nothing even remotely close to being as amazing as those murals and yet, no one
working at the airport actually knew anything about them? None of the employees, in passing, ever stopped to study them or think about how amazing
they are? The artistic elements, while frightening, are extremely well done. They're truly impressive pieces... and yet none of these people knew??
Give me a break.
I figured as a last ditch effort, I would go into an art gallery located across the way from a mural and asked about the murals, the guy claimed he
didn't know anything about them but laughed and commented that Jesse Ventura had stopped into his shop and asked him about them too. It really is
almost like they are being directed not to say anything about these murals.........
Anyways, I took a bunch of pictures if anyone wants me to post them.. Sorry for bumping an old thread.
