Harry Blackstone Jr. and his wife having fun with the Metamorphosis
sculpture in Houdini Plaza in downtown Appleton during their 1988

was dedicated in May 1985 with performances by the Houdini Club of
Wisconsin including an upside-down strait jacket escape by Ron Fable
of Wauwautosa. Well known magicians visiting Appleton and Houdini
Plaza have included Doug Henning, David Copperfield, Penn and Teller,
and many others.
