The facade of Bona Fide Green Goods is one big work of art. That's not a real window there on the left, it's paint. Oh, and that's not a real tree, either. (JON BODELL / Insider staff)

Sure, Concord has quite a few statues, sculptures and paintings, but what else is there? We asked ourselves the same question and decided to get to the bottom of it. We went out in seach of some things that have artistic value, but maybe they weren’t created with art in mind. We’re talking about things that were built for an actual purpose (other than to be gazed upon in amazement) that just so happen to look pretty cool, or things that were intended to be art but that many people may not recognize as such.

Take a look at what we found.
