Just in time for Halloween, the University of Virginia School of Law has acquired an Ed Morton original, and it’s gourdgeous.

Morton has carved out a niche for himself as an artist. His jack-o’-lanterns have been featured annually at the Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library, often depicting literary themes or UVA buildings.

This year, the Law School decided to get in on the fun.

Here’s hoping this “jack-o’-lawtern” will get all you Smarties into the holiday spirit as the fall semester winds down.
