Bogeyman Art Show blends image and story in a spooky exhibit

"You say boogie, I say bogey," says Eric Matelski, in response to questions about the pronunciation of the 'bogeyman' element of the Bogeyman Group Art Show now up at MacSpa. Inspired by the fact that his family treated Halloween like Christmas in his youth, and in honor of Denver's multi-cultural heritage, Matelski has produced his third edition of this show -- a display complete with ten artists' renditions of the multi-form spook of their youth. And each visual piece is coupled with a short, written story.
