Submitted by the Event Organizer
The SFSU Art Gallery explores the dark mystery and sheer terror found in discarded and forgotten objects, through a gallery-wide, participatory All Hallows’ Eve installation project.
Eleven local artists spearhead the movement, while visitors are asked to integrate their strange curiosities and morbid inclinations by modifying the gruesome environment with an array of thrift store relics and supplies provided by the gallery. Visitors can feel free to add to their installation.
The reception on October 29, 2013 features:
Live Music & Storytelling
- 5 – 6 pm: Banshee BoardWalk
- 6 – 8 pm: Scary Stories, Odd Acts and Open Mic presented by Velro (Velvet Revolution Reading Series)
- 5-6 pm: Mask Making (The Depot)
- 6-8 pm: Creepy Paper Dolls (The Art Gallery)
Featuring: Peter Max Lawrence, a contemporary media artist working within painting, video installation, sculpture, photography and drawing.
Participating SFSU artists, alum and curio collectors include: Misha Aziz, Anh Bui, Jose Cadena, Kiana Endres, Ashlie Gudmundsen, Megan Hendry, Christopher Macaraig, Thu Nguyen, Daniel Suarez.
