A certain portion of public funds used for public projects in Denver- it may even be for the entire state of CO- must be dedicated to art. In this
case it appears to be chicano art. The original paintings have been modified slightly, as I discovered after numerous trips through the airport.
I have traveled through DIA- both as a tourist coming into Denver from Buffalo, and as a Denver resident travelling on business- and the vibe the
airport gives off is very...creepy. People are herded like cattle on to the underground people mover, and the level of security in the area in and
around the airport is a level that is unseen in any of the other airports I have flown through. I do believe that the visible security forces at DIA
are greater in numbers than that of JFK or LaGuardia, or any of the other larger metro airports.
The runway shape of a swastika is clearly visible upon take off and landing, and I have been on planes there where other travellers/passengers have
made mention of it upon viewing it. A swastika shape does make sense for a runway though, as it does allow for four seperate planes to take off or
land without crossing paths with another.
One thing of note is the large amount of retail space- it's almost like an internal shopping center that could be utilized if the airport were shut
off from the outside world. With the exception of a grocery store, there are electronics, sporting goods, clothing, books/magazines/newspapers, and
numerous other retail outfits in the public areas and terminals- rivaled only by the sheer number of retailers at the Charlotte airport.
These could just be completely odd, random facts that I recall of my experiences at DIA, but I do think that somehow, they have something to do with
the "big picture" of what might be going on at DIA.
