It's time for Market Trivia!

Posted June 5, 2015

It’s time for Market Trivia! These sculptures on the Hillclimb stairs from Western Avenue are also:

A. Entrances to secret passageways
B. Bird houses
C. Light fixtures
D. Wireless internet hotspots

If you guessed "light fixtures," you're correct! The fixture shown here makes up an installation called "Short Cut" by local artist Dan Webb. The installation includes seven figures, each 30 inches tall and carrying a globe light. Next time you're walking the stairs between Western and the market, see if you can spot all seven!
