What: B Scared—Art Show and Carnival Extraordinaire!

When: Friday, October 31, 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Where: The B Complex
1272 Murphy Ave, SW
Atlanta, GA 30310

The B Complex—an artist cooperative community in Atlanta's West End—is undergoing a costume change of sorts as it transforms from one of the city's most rustic re-purposed industrial spaces into an old fashioned carnival of sorts this Halloween. Organizers at the co-op have compiled works from over 20 artists which explore traditional day of the dead imagery, various interpretations of modern-day Halloween rituals, as well as explorations of the psychological and emotional aspects of fear.

But don't come to the B Complex expecting "just another art show." And please don't show up in your blazer and turtleneck like your stereotypical art critic—unless of course, that's your costume for the evening. The B Complex throws a wild party and what, if any, is a better excuse to party than Halloween? The 8,000 square foot exhibit space will be bustling with the sounds of DJ Dr. Tim, performances by aerialists Dances in Air, and a very special treat from Atlanta's very own burlesque troupe—Dames Aflame. Resident artists have transformed the two-acre compound with black-lights, fire sculptures, carnival games and spooky surprises around every corner. And for those of you who wait until the last minute to plan your Halloween costumes, custom masquerade masks will be available on site!

A $20 cover ($15 for those in costume) gets you access to all of the evening's entertainment—including an open bar, as long as it lasts!
