If you haven't seen the park benches in downtown Bangor recently, take a look!

We understand the newly painted benches -- including this bench featuring Bangor's spookiest resident, Stephen King -- are part of a Bangor High School art project.

This Stephen King bench features King in front of a fireplace with a book and his dog, Molly, the "Thing of Evil." This bench is so Bangor! The artist reportedly called the project "sexy Stephen King."

This isn't the only painted bench downtown, we recommend taking a walk around Norumbega Parkway to discover the other creative seats. We love the art and the partnership with the city to make these art benches!

We think someone should paint a coat on him, he might get a little cold under the snow. ;)
