The lifecasting installation is fascinating and something that must be seen,” added Wolmark.
Several pieces of Hitchcock’s work will also be displayed and available for sale. A book of Hitchcock’s work, Dark Impressions – The Art of Philip Hitchcock will also be sold and will be available in advance for purchase at Stonewall Columbus.
