Imaginations come alive, along with pumpkins, at The Rise of the Jack O’Lanterns in Los Angeles and Long Island this fall. View more than 5,000 pumpkins carved by artists and sculptures light up the night sky now through November 2nd.
When leaves rustle and the wind howls, pumpkins become a favored medium for many artists. This gallery features artists with very diverse backgrounds—a musician, a sculptor, a forensic artist, and a farmer—and designs with equally different aesthetics, including pumpkins with flowers, pumpkins with dead musicians, and pumpkins with NYC pride. Check out these elaborate pumpkin carvings from six carvers—they're inspiring, scary, funny, and beautiful!
