1. Garbo & Gilbert mural

South Grant Avenue & Oak Street, Discovery District

This stunning black-and-white mural depicts silent film stars Greta Garbo and John Gilbert. It's a scene from their 1926 movie "Flesh and the Devil," and it captures the amazing chemistry of one of early Hollywood's most famous couples - the two fell in love in real life while filming "Flesh" and had moved in together by the time production was finished.

Local artist Jason Cho is one of four people behind this painting, located just a block from the Columbus Metropolitan Library and was dedicated to the Columbus Academy's graduating class of 1997.
