Scaring Sick Kids Since 1964

This Saturday, June 4, The Art of Bleeding will contribute a living “Hospital Clown” installation to the “Circus Circus” themed show at the Hive Gallery in Los Angeles. The show will also include clown art by the Chiodo Brothers known for their work on the cult “classic” Killer Klowns from Outer Space.

Prepping for the show, we dug up a few charming (scary?) photos of clowns and hospitals.  These are from a set for sale on e-Bay, taken around 1964 in a Chicago hospital.

(Check out that recumbent wheelchair in the last shot!  Got to build one of those! )
