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.

Hosted in MOCA’s Maya Lin-designed home, the party takes its theme from two ongoing exhibitions at the museum.

Hyperallergic editors and writers will be there (with masks on, though, so you can’t recognize us), and you should too.
