In yesterday's newsletter, we asked readers to locate these inventive, statuesque brothers.

  • This was a tricky one, but a few got it right: the Ohio State University campus in Newark, Tyler's new stomping grounds.

The intrigue: You can find plenty of other famous people nearby.

  • Newark's "Great Contributors" series by Gary Lee Price also features depictions of world figures like George Washington and Joan of Arc.
  • "Price's work is unique in depicting these historical giants not standing on pedestals but seated on bronze benches that offer an open seat for students to join them," campus website reads.

Zoom in: The Wright brothers are best known for inventing the powered airplane. You can find tributes to their work on every Ohio license plate.

👏 Congrats to Dai N. for winning Axios swag! We'll be in touch.
