"The Anatomy of Hysteria" Triple Feature with Asti Hustvedt! Ballad of Ruby Ridge with Jon Ronson! This Week and Beyond at The Morbid Anatomy Museum

Following is a list of upcoming Morbid Anatomy Museum events.

First, a note: our "Christmas Special Anthropomorphic Mouse Taxidermy Class" with taxidermist in residence Divya Anantharaman has a new date--Saturday December 20--and several newly available slots; you can find out more--and get tickets--here

Later that night we will also be hosting our annual Krampus party; details are still being finalized, but suffice it to say that this year's iteration will feature a Bavarian village wonderland and a Krampus photobooth (thanks, Jane Rose!); mini-lectures by journalist Jon Ronson and Matt Lake, author of Night of the Krampus; performances; a costume contest; a Krampus piñata; and, of course, a special appearance by St Nicolas and a birch-switch beating Krampus. Stay tuned for more on that soon! 

We also want to extend a warm thank you to all who joined us for yesterday's epic End of Exhibition open house, either as presenter or spectator. An extra special thanks also to Hendrick's Gin for making the afterparty so wonderful and delicious!

As many of you already know, we at Morbid Anatomy are committed to making our events as affordable as possible, but to do this, we need you support. If you are a fan of what we do, please consider us in your end of year giving--via our fiscal sponsor Brooklyn Arts Council--by clicking here. You can also support us by becoming a member (with all the benefits that entails!) here,

Thanks, and hope to see you at one or more of these great events!
