Where can you find family friendly fun followed by an adult costume party and midnight movie, all under one roof? If you live in the DFW area, you will find it at the Arlington Museum of Art. The local group of artisans, that I am part of, that will be running the Happy Holidays Gift Store as part of AMA's holiday exhibit, "Scenes from the Nativity", during November and December is donating their time to man one of the Trick-or-Treat stations being adopted by local groups. If you are in the area and want an alternative to trudging around the neighborhood, come join us for Fright Night at the museum. (more details, straight from AMA below)
Friday, October 31, AMA turns into Museum Scary on Halloween night and we invite YOU to join in the spooky fun!
From 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.: Join AMA for an alternative, indoor Halloween experience for your little ghosts and goblins.
--Main Gallery: trick-or-treating booths, FREE for children under 14 (bring a sack/bag/pail for candy)
--Basement: games and activity booths - $1 to $2
From 9:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m.: Get a sitter if you need to and come back for an adult Halloween party. $10 if you DON'T plan to partake of adult beverages, $15 if you DO plan to partake of adult beverages. And to get everyone in the holiday spirit, come in costume to get $2 off adult admission!

--Rooftop Gallery: outside deck open until midnight, costume contest for gift card prizes from local businesses (Grease Monkey, The Sanford House Spa, and others), and the midnight movie starts at 12:00 a.m. (of course!) when we will show the original 1968 black & white horror classic, Night of the Living Dead.
