pegboard meant for hanging worktools, presumably in some garage, workshop or
basement, has found its way to the York Boulevard sidewalk directly facing the glass-door entrance to The York gastropub on 5018 York Blvd.
Instead of featuring tools standing crisply to attention, awaiting their next assignment, however, the wooden board has a variety of rocks—and one piece of stick—anchored neatly over black-colored outlines of the tools, with mysterious numbers below them.
The idea is evidently to subvert the tool board into a spot for displaying objects from an archeological dig—and whoever’s behind the effort clearly has a sense of humor, not least because the board is upside down.
The curious artifact is a guerrilla art installation that recently showed up on the sidewalk, according to a barman at The York.
Highland Park artist Cathi Mulligan, owner of the Glass Studio nearby, told Patch that there were initially three similar installations on the sidewalk. She said she has not idea what happened to the remaining two—and nobody seems to know who the heck is behind it all.
