A group of people crafting at MCD's table at Cal Academy NightLife

Mobile MakeArt: NightLife – Night of the Living Dead

October 27, 2022 @ 6:00 PM - 10:00 PM

California Academy of Sciences

NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences is dying to have you back at their annual Halloween bash for a spine-tingling night dead-icated to science and a good time.

What will the past reveal when held up to the light? Sift through a plethora of discarded and forgotten vintage photo slides, using a light table to reveal the snapshots of the past. Find the image’s “soulmate symbol” in a wide range of charms and string both to a glow-in-the-dark bracelet, illuminating the perfect pair forevermore.

A spooky twist on an MCD favorite, this project is inspired by our current exhibition Iris Eichenberg: Where Words Fail and uses found materials from SCRAP, Bayview’s Creative Reuse center.

Activities FREE with NightLife admission, while supplies last, for adults 21+
