Streets: Dan Witz – Halloween Piece

What better to way for Dan Witz to celebrate Halloween and get ready for his show next week than to put up one of his famous street pieces but with a pumpkin day twist. About a year ago, we introduced you to Witz’s Kilroy Variations – photorealistic images of people stuck behind vents – possibly enough to scare a passerby on a normal night. Great timing to put up a especially bloody one as he is in town for his show “Dark Doings,” opeing this […]
