CSV Center Haunted House Halloween Fundraiser

Thursday, September 28, 2006
A benefit to support Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center.
Tickets available at SmartTix.

In its third year, “Nightmare” will be bigger and better than ever! After sold-out engagements in 2004 and 2005, New York’s favorite haunted house is back with an all new edition. This fall, NIGHTMARE will possess ALL FIVE BOROUGHS with locations in Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island. Presented by Psycho Clan, this sensational fright-fest, created and directed by downtown fearmeister Timothy Haskell, is poised to become the largest haunted event on the East Coast. NIGHTMARE combines urban horror with a visceral interactive theatricality to guarantee a unique and psychologically terrifying experience. Expect a chilling room-by-room encounter with the obsessions, anxieties and phobias that frighten New Yorkers most-borough by borough. NIGHTMARE makes visitors the stars of their own horror story, in a house that knows their worst fear- and forces them to face it.

About the show:

“Visions of Puerto Rico & Puerto Rican Pride” Celebrates Puerto Rican culture through Photography. The show will include more than fifty works by emerging and established artists from Puerto Rico, Miami Fl. and New York City. Each artist brings a unique style and vision. These artists have discovered the beauty, tales and the history to their culture in which has been incorporated into their craft of photography. Some of the pieces will depict Community, Urban settings, Music, Nature, Family, Politics and Spirituality. The photos will embrace the cultural empowerment of the Puerto Ricans and their pride. The photos will evoke emotion, feeling and discussion. We have bridged a gap between the Puerto Ricans on the Island and the Puerto Ricans out side of the island and this exhibit is the result of that connection.

Art is an expression of the unconscious and is dedicated to the free expression of feeling.
