Scala (Rainbow Staircase), Wuppertal, Germany

18 of 33

Artist Horst Gläsker took a drab staircase wedged in between two buildings in the town of Wuppertal and painted it a rainbow of colors, transforming an eyesore into a bright, energetic spot. He named the 112-step public artwork Scala (“staircase” in Italian) and embellished it with stencils of German words that relate to human relationships, such as love, sympathy, and dance. —Lyndsey Matthews
