POSTPONED: The Marvels & Monsters Ball

*In consideration of the Storm Sandy, the party will be rescheduled. A new date will be announced shortly!

What are you doing on Halloween? Dressing up as a superhero and partying at one of New York’s coolest downtown museums? We thought so. We are teaming up with Museum of Chinese in America & Hyperallergic to throw a Halloween Marvels and Monsters Ball on October 31.

Are you a hero or a villain? A monster or a muse? Come to MOCA dressed in costume and join us for an open bar, nibbles, and music by DJ Mas. Tickets are $10, or just $5 for members, and will be on sale at the door.

Best costume wins a tricky treat! Prizes include limited-edition Jeremy Lin t-shirts by Epic Proportions; an autographed copy of  Shattered, the newly released second edition of Secret Identities, the Asian American comics anthology; a gift certificate from Midtown Comics; and original artwork by New York cartoonists Gary Sullivan, Bianca Stone, and more.

Hosted in MOCA’s Maya Lin-designed home, the party takes its theme from two ongoing exhibitions at the museum. Marvels and Monsters showcases an array of images of Asians and Asian Americans in mainstream comics, from evil kung-fu masters to conflicted teenagers. Alt.Comics explores how Asian American artists and writers have innovated the medium of the comic book.

You’ll be treated to the comic stylings of host Sheng Wang. He’ll also assist in costume judging so don’t skimp on the gore, glitz, and glam!

MOCA, AAWW, Hyperallergic staff will be there (with masks on, though, so you can’t recognize us), and you should, too. Time to eat, drink, and be scary.
