Just north of the Cap is the picturesque Poplar Park, the Short North Arts District’s largest pocket park with one of the most exquisite public sculptures in the city, Andrew Lidgus’ obelisk titled In Dreams Again. The name is a phrase from Ohio’s state song, “Beautiful Ohio,” while the design on the totem depicts three cardinals and a trillium, Ohio’s state bird and flower, and nature spirits – one receiving water to represent the name “Ohio,” based on the Iroquois word meaning “beautiful river,” and one receiving leaves to honor the natural history of Ohio. The sculpture stands amongst café tables, chairs, and planters in the park’s stone plaza.
