The Great Autumnal Taxidermy Get Together
featuring the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists
Saturday October 28th 2006

Brooklyn, NY- Union Hall (a 5,000 square foot bar, restaurant and live music venue in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn) is excited to present The Great Autumnal Taxidermy Get Together. This event will be featuring the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists in their first New York appearance, performing a Northwood’s Taxidermy Masterclass and Gamefeed. The Rogue events will be followed by the second annual "A very Carnivorous Night Taxidermy Contest".

The New York Times calls MART “aggressively weird” and Minnesota Public Radio say MART “gives life to the lifeless.” And for the first time outside of the Midwest, MART will be presenting their unique masterclass/gamefeed, where an instructional taxidermy demonstration is followed by a meal consisting of the same animal featured in the demonstration. A vegan option will be provided.
