Denver International Airport wants $2 million for sculpture

DENVER - Denver International Airport is proposing one of the largest single purchases of public art in city history.

The airport says a $2 million sculpture by artist Ned Kahn will improve the experience of air passengers crossing between the main terminal and a new transit station and hotel going up on the airport's south side.

According to the Denver Post, the south terminal project has an overall price tag of more than $500 million. City rules mandate that 1 percent of the construction budgets go toward art -- that means a total of $5 million for airport art.
