There’s one good thing about the days getting shorter: there’s more time to enjoy Bernardi Roig’s sculptures in all of their illuminated glory. Beautiful as they are during the day, Intersections artist Roig‘s works comprised of white plaster figures and fluorescent lights are especially captivating at night. Here’s a look at the works after the sun has gone down.

Halloween seems a good day to bring this creepy painting into the conservation studio to begin examination and treatment.

Who knew you could find so many dark images in our collection to get your spirit ready for Halloween? We’ve got ghost towns, floods, and graveyard times. There are dead trees, three dead birds, witches and spooks! Bonfires, dark rivers, and dark entrances. There is also an artist or two who could be considered a little creepy, an ominous man in the grass and a ghostly portrait.
