Walter Potter at the Tribeca Film Festival! Stephen Coates with The X-Ray Audio Project! Warren Anatomical Museum! This Week and Beyond at Morbid Anatomy

http://morbidanatomymuseum.org/audio/walter-potter-the-man-who-married-kittens-2014/
We have many excellent events coming up in the days and weeks to come at Morbid Anatomy, including these two newly announced events: First, the New York City premiere of the Morbid Anatomy film Walter Potter: The Man Who Married Kittens, written and directed by our film maker in residence Ronni Thomas, creator of The Midnight Archive. This will take place offsite at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday, April 18; you can find out more here. We also are also delighted to welcome our good friend Stephen Coates of The Real Tuesday Weld--who did the music for the Potter film--for a screening and listening party entitled "The X-Ray Audio Project: The Incredible Story of Bootleg Technology, Cold War Culture and Human Endeavour," accompanied by complementary cocktails by Art in the Age; this will take place on Friday, May 8th, and you can find out more here
 
We also have three excellent events coming up this week: first, The Art of Death: An Evening of Drawing and Drinking (Monday, March 9th, more here) followed by a talk on Harvard's Warren Anatomical Museum with curator Dominic Hall (Friday, March 13th; more here) and, finally, our free Morbid Anatomy Spring Flea Market (Sunday, March 15th; more here). You also won't want to miss our upcoming Annual Morbid Anatomy Museum Gala with honorary chair Chloë Sevigny, sponsored by Hendrick's Gin and Six Point Beer! (Tuesday, April 21, more here.) Also, check out our new Podcast series where host Molly McBride Jacobson of Columbia University interviews event hosts, experts, and eccentrics on topics relating to death culture and obscure history. Listen here.
