Art designed by Halley’s Comet is on display

The Destin Library presents the vibrant and often whimsical artwork of Haley Castiel throughout September.

Halle is the one-woman show behind Halle’s Comet Designs out of Pensacola. Her work is often interdisciplinary, blending different art forms such as 3D printing, painting, and sculpture to create new styles.

In her most recent work, she examines the dichotomy between more universal ideas such as good and evil, light and dark, and masculine and feminine. The energy behind these collisions is the driving force in her art.

Learn more about Halle on her website at hallescometdesigns.com or call the Destin Library at 850-837-8572 or library@cityofdestin.com.
