Spooky stories and tales of woe have entertained people for generations. In nineteenth century London, a series of illusions and attractions brought to life these horror stories of decades past in the form of dark entertainment.

Almost a century later, France began experimenting with macabre themes demonstrating the disturbed in an artistic way. But haunted ploys did not emerge wholeheartedly until the 1930s in the United States when parents schemed up ways to distract young tricksters.

The revolution of these deceptive traps and illusions came to its apex when haunted houses nearly took over as a main source of entertainment during Halloween. Today, Haunted Houses could not exist without the holiday nor Halloween without the chilling presence of Haunted Houses.

Artists’ works for this call for entries must exhibit superstitious, haunted, or other dark themes. All media will be considered. Installations are highly encouraged, but will only be displayed for First Friday.
