In time for Halloween, we're delighted to bring you the most spooky and
unnerving works from the darkest corners of the vault of the Kalamazoo Institute
of Arts. Why are we so attracted to images of the macabre? Exploring our fears
inspires a quickening of the pulse and heightens our awareness of the mysteries
of life--and death. Psychologist Carl Jung wrote that the artist's role is to
give expression to the shadow side of humankind, which usually dwells below the
level of consciousness. He advocated forcing shadows into the light in order to
master dark impulses and maintain a healthy balance. Engage your subconscious
through art that explores eerie landscapes, creepy creatures, ghostly figures,
and other mysterious intersections of reality and imagination.
