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

The field of corn and the sideways Mona Lisa get all the glory, but Columbus is filled with countless pieces of public art. Some have been around for ages; others are brand new. Some are massive; others are smaller in scale. Some are the work of renowned artists; others were created by the community.

But they're all neat surprises to stumble upon during a busy day - a nice reminder that beauty can be found in the most unexpected of places.

We picked 10 of our favorites within walking distance of each other, narrowing our focus to Downtown and the Short North. And there were many more great pieces we had to leave off the list to keep it to just 10 (Pearl Alley mural, our apologies).
