I was asked to shoot pictures at the annual $500 a seat fundraising gala for The Orange Show this year. I accepted and had some fun.

The event was held at Adickes SculpturWorx Studio which, I was to discover, is where the molds for the President’s Park sculptures are kept. Presidents Park is where you will find a collection of 20-foot-high concrete busts of the 42 American commanders in chief created by David Adickes.

Seeing them all lined up there, bathed in orange light made me think of that They Might Be Giants song…

Here in the hall of heads
You look through the keyhole
This is the hall of heads
One step through the doorway
Roll out that special head
This is our favorite one
Please don’t try to leave
Don’t leave the hall of heads
Hide underneath the porch
Hide down behind the furnace
You can’t get away
You can’t really hide
Once you hear the call
The song of the hall of heads
You can’t run away
Your feet won’t help you run
You can’t run away
Out of the hall of heads

    I was driving through the warehouse district one night (probably by his studio) and saw the heads. They were scary. I was wondering where they had got off to. Now I know!
