CLEVELAND — Who did it? Only the nose knows.

A mysterious sculpture that resembles a nose showed up out of nowhere at Hart Crane Park in Cleveland near Merwin's Wharf in the Flats.

Canalway Partners was surprised to find its presence in the park, turning to Twitter to sniff for clues.

Mera Cardenas, Canalway Partners' executive director, said the mysterious proboscis made her laugh.

“I don’t know if it’s a high school prank. I don’t know if it’s a sculpture. I don’t know if it’s a piece of a Mardi Gras float. I’m not really sure what it is. But it just made me laugh," she said.

The structure is eight feet tall, but it's not heavy, Cardenas said.

Canalway Partners isn't trying to cause a stink, but the group is hoping the person or persons responsible come forward because they don't know what to do with it.

On Feb. 27, News 5 viewer Barb Dragony captured what appears to be the nose sculpture on top of a car traveling down Carnegie Avenue, heading onto East 9th Street.

The nose has made stops around town, spotted three days ago near the Carl Stokes U.S. Court House.

After doing some digging, a News 5 viewer said the nose was spotted at 2:51 into the video of the 2018 Parade the Circle.
