A core facet of Sunset Art Studios is to bring art to the community and remove barriers. And for me, haunted houses are a perfect mix of community and art, especially since Halloween is one of the few holidays where the community is actively encouraged to interact with each other. “Trick or Treat!”
In 2016, new media artists, sculptors, and musicians were invited to collaborate to create an immersive experience. All artists were asked to consider the work of Salvador Dali as a point of inspiration. There were no jump scares or monsters, it was just a bit… creepy.
Rachel Rushing coordinated the artists and Emily Riggert and I helped planned the event.
