Have No Fear of Art: Halloween at the McNay
Hosted by the self-proclaimed “first museum of modern art in Texas,” Have No Fear of Art: Halloween at the McNay is a multifaceted event uniting the unlikely trinity of “goblins, ghouls and Gauguin.” After viewing one of the current exhibitions (which include “Intimate Impressionism,” “Manet to Gaugin” and “Artists Take the Stage”), guests of all ages can eat, drink and be scary while enjoying trick-or-treating on the grassy grounds, food truck fare and an outdoor screening of 1954’s Creature from the Black Lagoon. Drawing inspiration from Beauty and the Beast, the cult monster classic follows a geology mission into the “upper reaches of the Amazon” to find an amphibious humanoid who’s been peacefully living there since the Paleozoic Era but is still frisky enough to get hot and bothered by foxy technician Kay Lawrence (played by Julia Adams). Attendees 21 and up can stick around for an after party ($15) with a DJ, photo booth, palm reader, costume contest and Halloween-inspired cocktails. Free, 5:30-10pm, McNay Art Museum, 6000 N New Braunfels, (210) 824-5368, mcnayart.org.
