A Look at The Mystic Museum’s Tales from the Crypt and Goosebumps Tribute Art Show & Exhibit

On May 12, The Mystic Museum in Burbank, CA debuted its latest exhibit, which pays tribute to two of the hottest horror franchises of the 90’s, Tales from the Crypt and Goosebumps.  The exhibit features artwork and artifacts from nearly 50 contributors and will be on display through mid-July.  We were fortunate enough to make it down for opening night and thought we’d share a bit about the new exhibit.

As always, The Mystic Museum made the opening reception super hospitable.  Everyone is super friendly, they passed out themed buttons to attendees and the event included wine and snacks along with music from a live DJ.  While this exhibit had contributions from a similar number of artists and was laid out the same as past events, overall it felt smaller and my wife and I were able to browse the exhibit in less than a half an hour even with the crowds.

This season’s exhibit features works from a number of different artists using a variety of mediums like acrylic, mixed media, digital, and more all paying tribute to a variety of characters from the various iterations of the Goosebumps series, as well as the Tales from the Crypt comics and television series.   The exhibit also houses a number of items directly from the Tales from the Crypt television series including a prototype mold of the Crypt Keeper puppet as well as original concept sketches from the Tales from the Crypt television series contributed by artist and fashion designer Micheline Pitt.  The exhibit also houses a rather large collection of original, licensed memorabilia from both franchises including board games, cardboard cutouts, toys and masks from both franchises.

But perhaps one of the most fun elements of this exhibit is the Crypt Keeper photo opp where you can snap a photo with the master of scaremonies himself while he spouts off some of his classic lines from the show.

Below is a small collection of some of the exhibit that I shared on Instagram, but there are tons of other great pieces worth checking out.

Like past exhibits, many of the original pieces on display are available for purchase and many of the artists are also selling prints of their works in The Mystic Museum’s shop.  I personally picked up print #13 of this limited run from Cavity Colors artist Devon Whitehead.
