    This is slightly off the subject. However, I was sad to see the treble clef removed from the corner of Summit Hill and Gay St. I was downtown with my children the other day and noticed the man on a horse sculpture near DTB has been removed too! What is going on?!? These sculptures have been around since I was a child. What’s next, the Rowing Man?

      I am pretty sure that the Treble Clef was moved to the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum. I’m not having too much luck finding out what happened with the “man on a horse” statue though.
