The Huntington Arts Council invites student artists to participate in Nightmare on Main Street; Art Inspired by the themes and narrative of Halloween.

The Halloween season is full of magic, creativity, and inspiration! With the transition of the seasons comes the cooler weather, darker days and bursts of color from the trees-the world around us transforms. We celebrate by turning ourselves into whatever and whoever we’d like to be on October 31st. Scary, silly, creepy or beautiful, what would you want to transform yourself into during this time of year?
