CLEVELAND — A new art installation in downtown Cleveland is making some Northeast Ohioans do a double-take while they are walking. 

The Beacon of Cleveland unveiled an art piece on Tuesday, featured on the sidewalk in front of their Euclid Avenue location, which looks like a sheet of glass raised by pillars. 

"Be careful! We just unearthed something pretty cool here on Euclid Ave," The Beacon said on Twitter, "thanks to @CityofCleveland and Speedpro Imaging for helping us bring this new public art piece to life!" 

According to Stark Enterprises, the group behind the artwork, the sidewalk public piece is all about perception and perspective. It also is a tribute to the leaders of ancient Greece and their impact on the world today. 

"Local development company Stark Enterprises created and executed this art piece with inspiration from the Tombs of the Kings in Paphos, Greece, paying homage to the incredible leaders and visionaries of the past that made the city what it is today," a representative said in an email to 3News.

The sidewalk art piece is located at 515 Euclid Avenue and is open to anyone who would like to check it out and get a fun picture to remember the display.
