Fence of keys makes everyone an artist


If you've walked through Downtown Wilmington lately you may wonder why there are a thousands of keys hanging on a construction fence. The fence that surrounds the lot of the old Wachovia building on Front Street is now a piece of art.

Dreams of Wilmington, along with random passers-by, have added an estimated 30,000 keys to the gate. Dixon Stetler came up with the idea. She says keys are one thing everyone has in common. She says everyone becomes an artist when they hang a key.

"Old houses, old apartments, every key has a story, and that's the best part when people tell me where the key used to go to," Stetler said.

Mayor Bill Saffo is expected to hang a key to the city on the fence March 20.
