Rats!!!!! Buried Alive Matchbox Theatre! Victorian Hair Art Workshop! Museum Closed Day! This Week and Beyond at Morbid Anatomy

First off: We regret to announce that The Morbid Anatomy Museum will be closed today--Sunday, November 30th. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this might cause.

We also have lots of great upcoming events to announce; following is a full list, but we very much hope to see you this Tuesday, December 2nd, at "Rats!!!!!!!!," an evening committed to rethinking that most maligned of rodents who is also--as the evening hopes to prove--a highly intelligent social animal, an inventive and adaptive urban dweller, and a handy screen upon which to project human anxieties. The night, curated by Programmer in Residence Amy Herzog, will feature presentations by Professor Herzog as well as Artist Kathy High and ethnographer and provocateur Eben Kirksey. You can find out more by clicking here.

We at Morbid Anatomy strive to make all of our programming affordable. If you are a fan of Morbid Anatomy and its offerings, please consider us in your end of year giving--via our fiscal sponsor Brooklyn Arts Council--by clicking here.
