Get ready for a frighteningly good time--the Tuscaloosa Public Library and Tuscaloosa News are proud to present the 7th Annual Monster Makeover Art Auction and Festival Thursday, October 27th, at the infamous Drish House!
The Monster Makeover Art Auction takes place at the historic Drish House located at 2300 17th Street Tuscaloosa. The silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. while the festival will run from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.. After the auction concludes, there will be a gathering at Band of Brothers to announce the winners of this year’s contest.
The Festival will be fun for the entire family: there will be crafts, bounce houses, games, and plenty of candy for trick-or-treaters. Kids can tour the haunted Bookmobile and check out a petting zoo from Tuscaloosa Barnyard. There will also be live music and food trucks on site so that the entire family can join in the fun.
The 7th annual Monster Makeover features art from Holt Elementary School’s second grade classes. One hundred and six adult artist were selected to recreate the children’s art into the medium of their choice. The exhibit is currently on display at the Tuscaloosa Public Library from October 11th- 25th.
