Just when you thought Gritty was the scariest monster attacking Philadelphia this Halloween season, a group of artists who call themselves Group X have installed a massive purple octopus creature in the Philadelphia Navy Yard, dubbing the exhibit “Sea Monsters HERE.” Artists Filthy Luker and Pedro Estrellas created the tentacles, which are actually inflatable.
As of this past Sunday, the exhibit was completed, with the octopus bursting out of the Navy Yard’s Building 611. It’ll be on display through November 16th, visible from the street.
PhillyMag.com notes, “Sea Monsters HERE is free and open to the public for viewing during the Navy Yard’s public hours: 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. If you’re wondering how to get there (never been to the Navy Yard?), we’ve got you covered.”
Since the tentacles are all inflatable, they sway in the wind and make the creature appear to be living and moving around inside the building. How creepy is that?! Gotta love it.
