Macabre: A Halloween Gallery Talk

Dance of the Skeletons

On October 24 at 6:00 pm, the Booth Family Center for Special Collections and the Department of Art and Art History are hosting a spooky Halloween Gallery Talk and reception, showcasing the Booth Family Center for Special Collections and Woodstock Theological Library’s newest exhibition, Macabre! The talk will be given by the Library’s Assistant Art Curator, Christen Runge.

The exhibition, which runs through January 27, 2019, is a (mostly) lighthearted exploration of the macabre, organized around some of the human motivations behind the creation of some of the Library’s more darkly-toned works. The categories, Memento Mori, Beware, Apocalypse, and Whistling in the Dark, feature items from all four areas of Special Collections and Woodstock Theological Library, including Rare Books, Manuscripts, Art, and University Archives.

Learn more about the exhibition and then sign up for the gallery talk to see the items in person!
