By the way, did we mention that the exhibition is set up in the art gallery of an actual mausoleum? You can't get more ghoulish than that! To be fair, however, Mountain View Mausoleum and Cemetery is more reverential than revolting, with spiritually themed decor designed to offer comfort to mournful visitors. (This is also the location, once again, for the annual Wicked Lit Theatre Festival, which will stage a series of three short plays within and around the mausoleum, during the Halloween season - making Mountain View just about the most haunted Halloween hot spot in Los Angeles.)
