We discovered this giant flatiron that was originally designed by a local Asheville artist, Reed Todd. It directs visitors to the 1926 Flat Iron Building, an Asheville landmark with an unusual wedge shape that houses shops and businesses.

Every time we walked by the iron there was a street musician performing in front of it.
