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.

Hyperallergic is partnering with the Museum of Chinese in America and the Asian American Writers Workshop to throw a Halloween Marvels and Monsters Ball on October 31.

Come to MOCA at 215 Centre Street from 8–11 pm dressed as your favorite superhero or supervillain 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!

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.

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

The Marvels and Monsters Ball will take place on October 31 from 8 to 11 PM at the Museum of Chinese in America, 215 Centre Street.
