The city of Denver is seeking to buy it's single most expensive art purchase in it's history, a $2 million dollar sculpture by world renown artist Ned Kahn.

DIA is notorious for it's art pieces that are showcased inside and out of the 35,000 square foot property. Denver hopes to integrate this new piece of art inside the airport greeting passengers at the main terminal and the new transit station and hotel being constructed on the south side of the airport.

The piece DIA hopes to install is a "kinetic work animated by the wind and spread across  thousands of  square feet,  is intended to enliven  the experience of air passengers."

If Denver does score the $2 million dollar piece of art it will put Denver on a slim list of cities that display a piece of Kahn's artwork. California artist Ned Kahn is best known for his  large, graceful and easy-to-like sculptures, often made of aluminum, that  move  without electrical power."
