AVAM Celebrates Halloween and Free Fall Baltimore

Share the News


catch of the day fish (2)Those folks at the American Visionary Arts Museum really do know how to party. Just as Free Fall Baltimore comes to a close with the end of the month, AVAM ramps it up with a super-fun, free Halloween party for all. Tonight, it’s BYOPOG (that’s Bring Your Own Pumpkin Or Gourd) to AVAM’s Tall Sculpture Barn where you can “punk out your pumpkin or glam up your gourd” with all manner of paint, bling, and more provided by the museum. Admission to the museum is free this evening as well (4pm-7pm), so while your Jack-o-Lantern dries, you can peruse the museum’s perennially impressive exhibits. But wait—there’s more!

To top it all off, at 7pm, they’ll be screening Beetlejuice on  the hill behind the museum. The 1988 film is just kooky enough, spooky enough, and silly enough to scare pretty much no one; but it’s great  entertainment for kids, film lovers, and everyone else in between. Of course, tonight’s weather will be a bit different from the summer evenings that AVAM usually screens films, so be sure to bring a blanket to put over yourself as well as under, and maybe even a thermos of cocoa (if you’re into that kind of thing). Sure, it’s not freezing out, but the cool nights can turn cold when you’re sitting outside for a stretch. Or when there are ghosts about.

Tonight’s event at AVAM starts at 4pm with FREE Pumpkin Decorating and free admission to the museum. Beetlejuice begins at 7pm. For more info, visit www.avam.org.
