Find Calder Greenwood’s Hidden Sculpture in Elysian Park

1:51 PM PDT on April 1, 2015


    We love artists who use their powers to make Los Angeles a better and more magical place. One such artist is Calder Greenwood, who you know from his cool, totally random paper mache installations around town, and his collaborations with Wildlife such as the spider hanging from the 6th street bridge.

    His latest is a secret sculpture that is hidden in "Elysian Forest," not far from "Dodger Castle". It celebrates the epic 80's Arcade Game Gauntlet. If you're too young to remember Atari's Guantlet, it was one of the best arcade games of its time, with up to 4 players playing at the same time using one of four characters (barbarian, valkyrie, wizard, and an elf) which have now been immortalized by Calder Greenwood in paper mache in a secret location.

    Want to find it??? Use the map below! If you're not Christian, this would make a fine substitute for an Easter Egg hunt this weekend...
