There are haunted houses. There's apple-picking. And then there's this day-long symposium in a cemetery dedicated to the intersection of art and death, where you'll experience talks, screenings, and show-and-tells spanning Edgar Allen Poe and the beautiful corpse, medical models, the history of the guillotine and largely unseen art from The Richard Harris death collection.
It's all curated by Morbid Anatomy creator Joanna Ebenstein, and presenters include a medical historian, a hair artist and art historian, a medical examiner and a medical illustrator. For good measure.
Oct 28, 10am-6pm, $35-$40, Death: A Graveside Companion, Greenwood Cemetery, 500 25th St (at 5th Ave), Brooklyn, tickets here
