Requiem Listening Party! Mourning Costume Guided Tour! Screening with Jon Ronson: This Week and Beyond at Morbid Anatomy

Following is a list of upcoming Morbid Anatomy Museum events. Hope to see you at one or more!

If you are interested in learning more about The Museum, you can listen to a nice piece on NPR's Weekend Edition--featuring CEO Tracy Hurley Martin and creative director Joanna Ebenstein--by clicking here. The piece pairs us with, yet again, "Death Becomes Her: A Century of Mourning Attire," now on at The Metropolitan Museum of Art; if you are interested in checking out that exhibit, why not join us for a special guided tour with November's Scholar in Residence Karen Bachmann on Saturday, November 22nd? You can find out more on that here. Thanks also to our good friend journalist Jon Ronson for including Morbid Anatomy in his list of five favorite New York City spots in this recent Time Out New York article; You won't want to miss the screening of his film "Bohemian Grove" this Thursday, on which more here. Another must attend event is a very special requiem listening party this Saturday, hosted by Andrew Fink, Katie Salmon, and Carl Schoonover, author of Portraits of the Mind. You can find out more about that here.
