Halloween at the MAC!
Visit us on Saturday, October 31! The MAC will open at 10:00am. All are invited to come see the MAC decorations throughout the day, collect candy, add to our Halloween message board, and get a photo taken between 1:00-5:00pm.
The Marion Art Center will be offering families some much-needed Halloween fun with a new COVID-safe twist for 2020. The beloved annual Halloween parade will not take place this year - such large scale gatherings are still prohibited by the state due to safety concerns. However, the MAC is encouraging families to keep that Halloween spirit alive!
The MAC will feature a virtual Halloween "parade" here on this web page. The wonderful MAC witches are calling on all kids and families (and adults too!) to send in photos of themselves in costume by using the form at the bottom of the page, or by emailing images to [email protected]
All costumed creatures are invited to walk or drive by the MAC to pick up Halloween goody bags on Saturday, October 31 between 1:00-5:00pm. These candy- and art supply-treat bags will be prepared and presented by one of the MAC’s famous witches, of course! Don't forget to have your photo taken (see below)!
The Marion Art Center will be devilishly decorated, and glowing at night, for all to see. Families can visit the MAC’s ghoulish grounds and will enjoy spooky sightings all around the building. Additionally, the MAC’s outdoor community message board will get a fresh coat of black paint, and anyone is invited to add a Halloween-themed message, drawing, or decoration with paints, markers, collage, or cutouts. The Marion Art Center also invites community members to share original material such as pumpkin-carving tutorials, ghost-storytelling videos, and festive recipes. Send any and all entries to [email protected], and keep your eyes on the MAC as it undergoes its Halloween transformation!
Halloween Photos from 1:00-5:00pm
Professional photographer Corinna Raznikov has volunteered to take photos of kids and families in costume outside at the MAC on Saturday, October 31 from 1:00-5:00pm. In case of rain, photography will take place (one person or one family at a time) inside the MAC theater. Web-ready photos to share online will be available for download from Corinna's Website later that week!
Model release forms will be available on site. Parents or individuals will be asked to sign a form in order to receive a link and password to view or download photos. Masks are required if entering the building, and social distancing will be observed.
The MAC’s Halloween festivities are sponsored in part by a generous grant from American Research & Management of Marion. The MAC would also like to thank the Kittansett Club for loaning us some of their decorations this year. Special thanks to Corinna Raznikov for volunteering her time and talent.
