Luncheon of the Pumpkin Party

During the museum’s blowout 90th anniversary kickoff weekend this past January, I struck up conversation with a very interesting gentleman named Fred Talcott. Among other things, Mr. Talcott is part of a pumpkin carving group that has a very artistic approach to making jack’o lanterns—see the above rendition of Luncheon of the Boating Party with a Halloween theme! The pumpkin carving festival goes on through mid-day today. For more information on where to see these artsy pumpkins, visit The Holtorf Pumpkin Association’s website. Happy Halloween!
