The Tree People!!!

Hey Frightners!

This is one of the many reasons I love working in the city because you never know what you will see!

Yesterday I was taking a walk in a nearby park by my job and I came across these awesome tree people sculptures! The parks name is Madison Square Park and it is known for it's contemporary public art program which displays a wide variety of media by artists ranging from emerging to internationally renowned. You just never know what you are going to see which is what I really love about going there.

Now I am not sure of the name of the artist that is currently displaying their works at the park but this was one of a handful of sculptures I came across in my walk and I thought it was super cool and would be a great piece of inspiration for a future Halloween prop project. Not for this year but maybe for next.

I love how they are rooted into the ground. I actually remember seeing PumpkinRot create a creepy version way back in the day which I absolutely loved. The picture is below.

It's always good to keep your eyes peeled for inspiration and I will surely be headed back to Madison Square Park soon to take some snap shots of the other unique sculptures that are there and if I can I will try to provide a link to the artist who created "The Tree People." Cool stuff!

Stay Frightful!

Those tree people are this kind of art with a bit of the dark side involved. Good find. Thanks for sharing.
