MONSTER SMASH: A Costumed Dance Party!
We did the MASH, we did the MONSTER SMASH! Calling all witches and warlocks on the East End, we invite you to ‘COME AS YOU AREN’T’ to The Church’s annual fall fundraiser, MONSTER SMASH, a Halloween dance party. The evening returns in a slightly pared-down but still spooky fashion. Join us on the dance floor with music from the one and only MISTER LAMA, whose 70s/80s hits you’ve boogied to at The Church before. Vinyl DJ Esly Escobar will also be taking a spin on the turntable; prepare for the vintage classics we all know and love.
PLUS! NEW! A Costume Competition:
With this year’s costume theme being “The Sporting Life”, inspired by our summer exhibition Strike Fast, Dance Lightly: Artists on Boxing and our fall exhibition RE:CYCLE– The Ubiquitous Bike, we’d be silly not to offer a costume contest, especially with how incredibly creative the costumes were last year. Halfway through the party, all participants will get a chance to show off their costumes (and dance moves) solo on the dance floor. 1st place will receive a $100 cash prize, 2nd place will receive a complimentary family Church membership and 3rd place will receive a complimentary single Church membership. Come out and strut your stuff and take home a prize.
Come as your favorite sports legend or perhaps even a depiction of sports in art, such as Andy Warhol’s “Muhammad Ali”, a Jeff Koon’s basketball, or one of Catherine Opie’s High School football players.
Enjoy some light bites from a festive grazing table prepared by East Hampton Kitchen with wine sponsored by Channing Daughters Winery and beer from Kidd Squid Brewery. This spooky season, we invite you to ‘COME AS YOU AREN’T!
