Time Out says

Over 30 NYC artists will have their dark, curious, and surreal works on display by candlelight at this haunting art exhibition

What began back in 2019 as a one-night-only Halloween art crawl has turned into a weeklong spotlight of thrilling, chilling fine art from more than 30 local artists.

Running from Wednesday, October 25 through Tuesday, October 31, the woman-owned and curated pop-up gallery will take place at 145 Sterling Place off Seventh Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, displaying "dark, curious, and surreal works" by candlelight. Featured pieces include “Midnight” by photographer Eden Estephan, “The Meating” by painter Jeramy Turner and “Sacred Space” by songwriting collective Founders. (And even if you can't physically attend, you can still take in all of the festively spooky fun by tuning into the entire exhibition online at The Skeleton Crawl website from Friday evening on.)

Along with taking in the illuminating art (literally—you can grab a flashlight to get up close and personal with all of those fine details in the dark), you can hear the famously eerie words of Edgar Allan Poe during a live reading and musical performance on Thursday at 8 pm; sing your favorite spooky sons during Halloween-themed karaoke night on Friday at 9 pm; mingle with official The Skeleton Crawl artists at the opening bash on Saturday from 6 pm to 9 pm; and settle in for a scary film screening curated by participating artist Jeramy Turner on Sunday at 7 pm. 

You can also participate in a Spider Toss Raffle for the chance to win a Polaroid iType Camera and potentially create some art of your own. Entries are $10 each and the raffle winner will be announced on All Hallows Eve. And, as with all things Halloween, costumes are very much encouraged throughout the whole fest!
