One of Denver's most controversial and iconic statues located in front of the Denver international airport has recently been part of a debate on whether it should go or stay since The Blue Horse's contract recently expired. The statue was purchased for $600,000 and is now estimated to be worth $2 million.

DENVER—The fate of the big blue horse at Denver International Airport is up for debate.

On Monday the Denver Commission on Cultural Affairs and City Art representatives will discuss whether to keep the statue of the rearing horse or put it out to pasture.

The contract has expired for the 32-foot tall piece of public art, which some people love and others hate, especially its glowing red eyes at night.

According to KCNC-TV, the horse was purchased for $600,000 and is now valued at nearly $2 million. That could be used as an argument to relocate the horse.
