Photos: Stephen King Art Show Will Haunt Your Dreams

It's time to revisit the fear we felt as children watching Stephen King movies like The Shining and It.

Hero Complex Gallery’s “King For a Day” features art inspired by the Stephen King universe, from his books to the film and TV renditions of those novels. The show opened this weekend and runs until April 6.

A portion of proceeds from the show will go to benefit King’s charity of choice, The Haven Foundation, a non-profit to benefit freelance creators who are unable to work, due to a disease or accident.

Prints of the pictures can be bought at the Gallery or online from $15 and up. They’re available at
