To Find These Hidden Adventurers, You'll Have To Go On A Quest
There's some art you can see this weekend, but you're going to have to go on a quest to find it. Calder Greenwood is a local artist who likes to pepper Los Angeles with paper-mâché art installations. We really enjoyed his giant spider hanging over the Sixth Street Bridge, and now he's got something new. You may recognize these life-size figures from your local Dungeons & Dragons quest. More specifically, you might recognize these adventurers from Gauntlet, the 1985 Atari hack-and-slash dungeon crawl (and our personal favorite game to play at Blispy in K-Town).
To find the figures, you'll have to follow this map.
Greenwood told LAist this is actually the second time his wizard has appeared. The sorcerer initially manifested beneath a Frogtown Bridge.
"I thought he was lonely without fellow travelers, so I made a team of four—a barbarian, valkyrie, wizard and elf—in classic Dungeons & Dragons style," Greenwood said.
The first wizard was also sort of hidden, and Greenwood's hoping some brave souls will embark on his quest and find the foursome.

His latest solo exhibition is titled “Flutterluster,” showing at Los Angeles gallery Matter Studio. It features large works that incorporate what Huss describes as a “fluttering line” that he’s been playing with ever since he was a child — going on 50 years.
It's set to open by mid-to-late February.
