AMSET to host third-annual Monster Mash, Oct. 19

monstermashThe Art Museum of Southeast Texas will host the third annual Monster Mash, Boos and Brews, Oct. 19, from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., for ages 21 and up. Admission is $35 in advance, and $45 at the door.

  The event will feature a costume contest, live musical entertainment by Southeast Texas rock band Twisted Throttle, and food from Al Basha and Two Magnolias.

  “We are looking forward to the outfits people come in,” Kara Timberlake, AMSET PR coordinator, said. “We hope they get really creative with their costumes. We have first-, second- and third-place prizes. “Del Papa and Giglio Distribution will be supplying seasonal craft beers, wines and hard ciders, if you’re not into seasonal beers.”

  The costume contest will be held at 9:30 p.m. The event will also include face-painting, a silent auction and raffle, a fortune teller and a photo booth.

  This year, AMSET will be honoring Xenia Fedorchenko, associate professor of printmaking, drawing and color theory at Lamar University.

  “All proceeds will benefit AMSET exhibitions and educational programs,” Timberlake said.
