Boo! Let's hope the ghosts in PAFA are cute like these guys.

Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts (PAFA) has been embracing the paranormal recently. Fernando Orellana’s exhibition of ghost machines has been on display since August, but with Halloween around the corner, the Academy is ready to go spookier.
