Support Morbid Anatomy with your End of Year Giving!

2014 has been a remarkable year for Morbid Anatomy, with the launch of the Morbid Anatomy Museum and our critically acclaimed inaugural exhibition "The Art of Mourning;" the release of The Morbid Anatomy Anthology; hundreds of lectures and events; and amazing, educational field trips to such disparate places as Mexico, Amsterdam, Baltimore and Barcelona. We could not have done any of this without our fans and followers. And we thank you.

If you appreciate our programming, please consider supporting Morbid Anatomy in your end of year giving!

Every year, museums such as ours rely on annual fund donations to underwrite exhibits, fund programs, and to pay staff. If all of our followers donated $5, we would meet our funding goals for the year. We have already done much to advance the Museum’s exceptional programming and expand dramatically its reach within the community of rogue scholars and intrepid admirers of the extraordinary. Our future is bright, but we are depending on the goodwill of people like you to make this first year happen.

Please consider supporting Morbid Anatomy in your end of year giving! You can make a secure--and fully tax deductible--donation online via our fiscal sponsor Brooklyn Arts Council by clicking here.

Thank you again for all your support, and here's to an even more amazing 2015!

Love, 
The Morbid Anatomy Team

Collector's Cabinet Exhibition! Art of Mourning Closing Party! The Scholarly Mysticism of A. E. White! This Week and Beyond at Morbid Anatomy

Happy Holidays! We have lots of exciting upcoming news and events to announce!

First off, we are delighted to announce that our current exhibition, The Art of Mourning, has been extended until Friday, January 16th and will be ushered out with, suitably, a mourning-themed costume party featuring a final tour of the exhibition by co-curators Evan Michelson (TV’s Oddities) and Joanna Ebenstein (Morbid Anatomy Museum Creative Director); music by DJ in residence Friese Undine; traditional mourning foods by Rachel Ridout and wax sealed traditional mourning biscuits by funeral director Amy Cunningham; ; mourning film clips curated by David Cory and Meg Moseley; as well as complimentary drinks and snacks. Many of the collectors will be on hand to answer your questions, the museum will be free and open for the duration, and guests are encouraged to come in their own take on mourning attire. You can find out more--and buy tickets--here.

We also also thrilled to announce our next exhibition, The Collector's Cabinet, the first of a series of exhibitions which will showcase extraordinary objects hidden in private collections, with labels for each object written by the collectors themselves. Artifacts will include Weimar erotica belonging to Mel Gordon, author of Voluptuous Panic; a pre-1800 wax memento mori figurine depicting a decaying corpse crawling with vermin from the collection of Evan Michelson (TV’s Oddities); an anthropomorphic taxidermy tableau once exhibited at Cress Funeral Home from the collection of Mike Zohn (TV’s Oddities); A pair of rare 19th century Rowland Ward zoomormphic candlesticks from an anonymous collection; early plastic lamp finials from the collection of artist Mark Dion; A copy of Physica Sacra from the collection of Morbid Anatomy CEO Tracy Hurly Martin; a Victorian scrap book filled with human hair from ephemera collector David Freund; and the title page to Frederik Ruysch’s Thesaurus Animalium Primus newly added to The Morbid Anatomy Museum permanent collection n (as seen above).

Other participating collectors will include Ryan Cohn of TV’s Oddities; “Collector of Death” Richard Harris, Daniel and Sommer Santoro of Black Gold, magic collector Rory Feldman, board member Jennifer Butkevitch, author Catherine Crawford, and more. The show will be on view from January 23 until March 29, 2015. Also, please save the date for an opening party to take place on Friday, January 23!

We also have scores of wonderful upcoming events, a full list of which follows. We very much hope very much to see you at one or more!

Merry Christmas and Happy Krampusnacht From Your Friends at Morbid Anatomy!

Merry Christmas from Morbid Anatomy with St. Nicholas and Krampus, his Eastern European, birch-switch-beating, lolling-tongued, cloven-hoofed, child-punishing side kick. In places such as Germany and Hungary, Krampus continues to be a beloved part—and to our mind, the highlight of!—the Christmas season, joining St. Nicholas for all his public appearances,
even at local Burger Kings.
 
Each year, we at Morbid Anatomy honor Krampus in the form of gifts, apparel and parties. To see photos from last Saturday's annual Morbid Anatomy Krampus costume party, click here and here. To purchase special Morbid Anatomy Krampus gifts, click here.
