Things that Creak in the Night II: More Selections from the Halloween Collection of Peter Paone


About the Exhibition

Peter Paone has been collecting Halloween toys and decorations all his life.  This exhibition, including lanterns, paper decorations, and other tricks and treats, promises to unmask the art of Halloween.DSC_6696

Many of the artist-designed objects in the exhibition were first made in the 1920s and some are still in production today. Paone is not only attracted to the imagery of the many dime store cut-outs, hats, and horns
on view in this exhibition. He is also interested in the deeply intellectual and artistic process of lithography used to manufacture many of these objects. Come explore the objects’ unique and artistic manufacturing techniques and their playful and festive imagery. Happy Halloween!
