Take a stroll and take in Columbus' oft-overlooked murals and sculptures

8. Limestone Sofa

1159 N. High St., Short North

This is a useful piece of art, which is cool unless you really wanted a comfy place to sit. The 10,000-pound limestone sofa was created by University of Akron professor Robert Huff and placed in the Short North in 2004 as the winner of a public-art contest. These days, well - if you want to pose for a photo (or flop down for a rest) on it, remember that it's just as dirty as, if not dirtier than, the sidewalk.
