Each year, Morose and Macabre’s House of Oddities brings together artists from around the country to take part in The Atrocity Exhibition, a bizarre night of performance and art that tells a horribly wonderful story. This years Exhibition is entitled “Museum of Dreams” and they invite you to experience a place that rests deep within slumber where the Sandman plays the curator of the Boogeyman’s collection of night terrors.
“We create a 360 degree living art installation with the most talented people we know” says Macabre Noir, co-founder of the event.
The Atrocity Exhibition is noted for its mix of unusual sideshow, cabaret, burlesque, and performance art, as well as its Artisan Market that features one of a kind handmade art for those of a darker sensibility.
Returning for her fourth year as the ring mistress and host, is Pittsburgh’s own Cherri Baum (The Boogeyman) and joining her is co-host and 6 year Atrocity veteran, Lilith Deville (The Sandman).
