The Morbid Anatomy Museum has created a buzz in Brooklyn recently with exhibitions of items that are unusual or, well, morbid in nature. There is a cabinet of curiosities aspect to the museum's approach, focusing on such oddities as a two-faced cat preserved in taxidermy, a Victorian scrapbook of human hair, and an entire exhibition of artworks relating to mourning culture.
The Magic in New York blog will have more on Do the Spirits? return soon. In the meantime, please enjoy the selection of items from the exhibition in the gallery below. The Museum of Morbid Anatomy is located at 424 Third Avenue at 7th Street in Brooklyn. Hours and admission information is available at: http://morbidanatomymuseum.org.
