frights at the booseum

Happy Halloween! While the real horror is how long it’s been since I’ve updated this blog, I love sharing all things spooky and museumy each year. I’ve covered haunted museums and spine-tingling artwork but this time around I’m featuring links to some of my favorite Halloween get-ups sported by art fans:

  • Buzzfeed’s “17 Brilliant Art History-Inspired Halloween Costumes” includes a couples nod to Grant Wood’s American Gothic, a Van Gogh self-portrait, and a Banksy.
  • Practically everybody at Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Halloween party, Spirits & Skeletons, which HMNS promised would be “the jam.”
  • The Blanton Museum of Art’s staff costumes inspired by the museum’s permanent collection convinced me to step my Halloween game up next year.
  • From the Beach Museum of Art, gallery attendant Lindsey B.’s “Mobile Lisa.”
