Some people experience unease going through the airport, and it seems best to provide something soothing and uncontroversial to look at while walking to the aircraft .... like advertising.
Certainly I wouldn't expect to see:
A dead child in a casket holding their bible
Soldier marching through ruins complete with gun, sword, and gas mask and civilian casualties

Have these murals been on public display to travelers at the Denver International Airport?
In http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_sociopol_denver.htm, which seems to contain conspiracy theory material, a large section is devoted to Denver International Airport.
Some claims, though repeated, about Denver's airport are so bizarre they seem like hoax material that no one would seriously believe:
- that the runways form a swastika [doesn't really look like it to me]
- that there is a secret base with underground buildings
- that murals depict what the conspirators plan to do with the rest of us
A google search for "denver international airport bizarre murals" turns ~50,000 hits and the first page shows a lot of similar material, much more than I would have expected.
I'm wondering if these murals were ever there, or are still there, or are off in a special art gallery near the terminal, so that regular travelers would not be greeted by the images as they changed planes. If absent, then this may be a complete hoax. Even if present, a reasonable explanation for the murals would be expected.
Even though Art in the United States is protected from government censorship by the First Amendment to the US Constitution as part of freedom of speech and press, I just can't imagine a busy airport sponsoring these kinds of disturbing images in the travel areas.
