Happy Halloween! If you’re short on costume ideas this year, public art could be just the inspiration you need.

You can always hit the mainstream and find a Banksy work to impersonate, or peruse our art map to get the creative juices flowing.

We found a few costume ideas to get you started, based on public art on both coasts
