Ask The Experts: Richard Eagan - Live on Zoom! Wednesday, May 19, 7pm, ET
photo

In 1978, artist Richard Eagan was visited by a series of dreams about his beloved childhood playground, Steeplechase Park. These dreams led him back to Coney Island, where he met a young Dick Zigun and partnered with fellow artist Philomena Marano, forming the Coney Island Hysterical Society.

So began an association between Coney Island USA and the Hysterical Society which sparked a revival of interest in and eventually the redevelopment of New York City’s legendary amusement beach.

Richard’s unique Coney Island-inspired studio work can be seen at richardeagan.com
