Monkeying around in Racine

A public art event in Racine, Wisconsin features replicas of the nearby Wind Point Lighthouse. From that starting point, local artists are free to create to their hearts' content, which they have, and their works are on display throughout the downtown area. The event, called Lighten Up! runs through September 15, when dozens of decorated lighthouses will be sold in a benefit auction.

King Kong runs amok in this artist's rendition of the famous movies, with the Wind Point light standing in for the Empire State building. A little vignetting in post-processing and wide screen cropping helps establish the cinematic quality of the scene.
