Together, Sweeney and Kelly have hosted private art events in the past, but this time they wanted to host an event that could be open to all students.

Anyone can submit work, including staff and students. All works are encouraged from all Post creatives. Artwork, short stories, performances, and stage makeup or costume designs are welcome. Submissions can be sent to or

“It’s a great way for students on campus to get their art work shown and also a nice way to celebrate Halloween,” Nicholas Seiban, senior psychology major, said.

“Hallozine,” a student-produced Halloween magazine, will feature all the submitted work from the show and will be available for free at the event.

“Our campus is full of such wonderful talent, if you are free I think it would be a great idea to stop by to peruse the works and broaden your horizons,” Elizabeth Barcia, senior psychology major, said, “I think the most wonderful thing about art is that it makes you think, and see something in a new light.”

Lunch and Halloween candy will be available at the event. A costume contest will be held with a $25 Blick Art Supply gift card for the first place winner.
