Leilani Bustamante’s “Haunt” at Modern Eden Gallery.

Opening on Saturday, March 14th at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco, California is Leilani Bustamante’s solo show, “Haunt.”  Fans of True Detective might find the subject matter familiar as work in the show is loosely based on the horror novel, “The King in Yellow,” by Robert W.
