A Center City art gallery is reviving the mystery surrounding Philadelphia's "Wireman."
The unique wire-bound sculptures that were found in in the trash on South Street are making a comeback at the Fleischer-Ollman Gallery.
NewsWorks reporter Peter Crimmins interviewed John Ollman of the gallery, who says 30 years ago, more than 1,000 of the small objects were discovered.
The unknown artist behind the works was dubbed the "Wireman."
