Harold Fox and Lonesome Town

Photo by Elise Thompson

You have probably spotted a piece of abandoned furniture, a chair, a couch, a TV, with a sad cartoon face and sometimes a party hat. These Sad Clown Public Installations are part of a project known as Lonesome Town. Last weekend, the artist, Harold Fox held his last exhibition in Los Angeles at La Luz de Jesus.

Sadly, this means there will no longer be the thrill of finding any of his abandoned “affable hobos and menacing clowns,” as La Luz described them. I should have taken them home, but I wanted everyone to be able to enjoy them. You can enjoy these photos taken by Mike Guerena at the show plus a bonus street find.
