With Halloween being pretty much the best holiday all year, the next installment of Crocker Art Museum’s always creative ArtMix event is one we’ve been looking forward to ever since we caught wind of what was brewing behind the scenes months ago. Thursday, Oct. 9, 2014 it all comes together at ArtMix: Monsters’ Ball, featuring tons of people dressed ridiculously for costume contests, a scream competition by Sacramento Horror Film Fest, live music from Grass Valley fuzz-rockers Mount Whateverest, spooky dance tunes from DJ Shaun Slaughter, 10-minute flashlight art tours, ghostly dance performances, local psychics and a freaky photo booth from Giggle and Riot Funbooths. Also check out the four-on-four “creature feature soccer matches” in the Living Dead Cup presented by the Sacramento Lady Salamanders, a Street Soccer USA program using soccer to help women and youth break the cycles of homelessness, addiction and domestic violence. So if super-fun themed events are your thing, and you like hanging out with zombies and other creepy crawlers, head to Crocker this Thursday from 5 to 9 p.m. Admission is just $10 for non-Crocker-members (free to members), and college students get a couple bucks off. There will be $5 drink specials all night too. Visit Crockerartmuseum.org or call (916) 808-1182 for more information and to purchase your tickets ahead of time. Remember, ArtMix happens the second Thursday of every month with fresh new themes. Get out and experience the arts from a different perspective.
