Happy Halloween and Day of the Dead from Morbid Anatomy: Events, Products and News
We at the Morbid Anatomy Museum are celebrating our favorite time of the year with scores of terrific events and new seasonal products. Following is a list of events taking place this week and those newly announced; for a list of all upcoming events, click here.

New in The Morbid Anatomy Online Gift Shop: We are delighted to be offering a special limited, edition signed sugar skull screen print (seen above) by former Artist and Anatomist in Residence Emily Evans! To commemorate Day of the Dead, she is offering free delivery until November 3rd! To find out more--and order a copy of your own!--click here. 

In the News: National Geographic just posted a thoughtful and intelligent video about our popular anthropomorphic mouse taxidermy class and its teacher, Taxidermist in Residence Divya Anantharaman; you can check that out here. The Museum also got a shout out in the Ted blog as one of ten surprising and strange New York attractions; more on that here.

In addition, The New York Times just published another nice piece about death and mourning in New York exhibitions which featured The Morbid Anatomy Museum, which you can read here. And, fans of romantic ballet might enjoy this brief article on the uncanny allure of the artform by our museum's director in this month's Royal Academy of Dance's Dance Gazette.

We at Morbid Anatomy are committed to making all of our events affordable, but to do this, we need you support.
