NJ artist turns heads with mannequins
Spooky, stylish and safe. Perhaps an odd choice of words to describe the crowd of more than 50 mannequins that look out of Dee Luzack's yard here. Her partner, artist Michael Calantoni, created the mannequins. They are made of old recycled materials, like plastic bottles, duct tape, wire, wigs and siding. Safety was the original reason he started making mannequins. Calantoni says that he usually walks or rides his bicycle and it was dangerous for him to cross the street.
