Montclair Art Museum’s Fun(d)raiser Opens Its Doors to Trick-or-Treaters

Are your children still horrified by the Hallowe’en That Wasn’t this year?

With all the postponing of Trick-or-Treating and Turtleback Zoo’s  Howl-o-ween, what’s a kid to do? And what about the parents who love Hallowe’en just as well? We need consolation too.

Happily, the Montclair Art Museum is keeping the spirit of giving out treats alive well into November. Not only did they have a fantastic pumpkin carving event, now their Art on Tap fund-raiser, scheduled for Friday night, is open to all ages. They are making it extremely family friendly to encourage everyone to come celebrate.

From the Montclair Art Museum:  

Trick-or-treat & dance on little feet!

MAM is always family friendly! After trick-or-treating on Friday evening, feel free to bring your kids in costume to Art on Tap. Enjoy dancing with live DJs from WFUV in Leir Hall and explore the fun contemporary art exhibitions. There will also be children’s treats like mini hot dogs with your choice of mustards, juices, ice-cream, and the TAP, the specialty non-alcoholic drink of the night. All children under 12 are free at MAM, as is our policy, with a ticketed adult. Bring your leftover candy!

On view will be Marina Zurkow: Friends, Enemies, and Others and The Spectacular of Vernacular, both of which are enjoyable for children of all ages.  My three-year-old really enjoyed the Zurkow exhibit when we stopped in to see it.

So console your children’s Hallowe’en grief and give them one more chance to dress up away from dangling limbs and downed wires. You’ll also be supporting the Montclair Art Museum with every ticket purchased. Tickets are $75 for members and $85 for non-members. Children under 12 are free with a ticketed adult; older children must have their own tickets.

Dancing, costumes, drinks and food for everyone, and a Friday night out with the whole family. Sounds like a winning combination for everyone involved.
