It’s a BIG Iron!

While we were walking around downtown Asheville on Saturday evening, we stumbled on this giant Sad Iron:

They call it a Flat Iron and it is located in front of the Flatiron Building.  In 2009, an alleged drunk driver ran into the sculpture and knocked it off its base. I found out about the accident when trying to learn more about the sculpture.  The only thing I know is that it was created by Reed Todd.

The Iron is on the Asheville Urban Trail which is just a fancy name for a walking tour.
