Once years ago, Jack and Lizzie told me that they
were taking some pictures in the freight elevator
behind the gallery for Lizzie’s Depop very late one
Saturday when the elevator suddenly and without
any prompting, descended. The story goes that
they ended up in some sort of basement storage
facility below Little Broad. I pictured this
basement as the art-school version of those TV
shows where they saw off the locks of storage
units to see what they can find— who
knows what was down there.

According to Jack and Lizzie, they were stuck in
this basement, as the elevator would not go back
up, and they wandered around (tunnels, perhaps)
until they found some stairs that let them out
somewhere near The School of Public Affairs—
across the sculpture garden, quite far away,
