A number of disembodied heads emerge from the ground in the "Monument to Walken" installation through March. Should you get any ideas, the park informs visitors: "No Walken Picking" allowed.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. They're not Halloween decorations, but they are spooky enough to be. A sculpture park in Queens is currently displaying a number of disembodied heads, emerging from the ground as part of the installation Monument to Walken. The faces are all that of actor Christopher Walken, who comes from Queens. The busts will be on display through March. And should you get any ideas, the park informs visitors no Walken picking allowed. It's MORNING EDITION.
