“Ghost Cats” at Eastern State Pen

I see that an explanation is needed for my page on the Eastern State Penitentiary “ghost cats”.  I had intentions to post written information about them long ago – and have been slow in doing so…  So I will post on them today, so as to clear up any confusion in what these pictures alone might suggest. 

The cats are part of an art installation by Linda Brenner in remembrance of the cat colony that took over the penitentiary after it was shut down and abandoned, as well as to the man who dedicated much of his time in taking care of them, Dan McCloud.  From what I’ve read (my source is listed below), these cats that you see in the pictures were molded from the actual cats that were there.  The art installation was approved by Eastern State Penitentiary to be placed beyond the boundaries of where on-lookers are allowed to access, so that we might see them as a part of the larger past existence of life and history of the building.  The installation “is a testimony to survival”.
