Dive into Pittsburgh’s zombie connections, hear all about the Smithsonian’s work to collect zombie history, meet icons of the local zombie film tradition, grab a zombie cocktail, and walk away with a (fake) zombie bite.
Smithsonian curator Eric Jentsch will discuss zombies in pop culture, including the National Museum of American History’s recent work with AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Plus, hear from cast and crew members who worked with Pittsburgh history maker George Romero on his iconic film, “Night of the Living Dead.”
Admission includes access to the full History Center, including the blockbuster Destination Moon: The Apollo 11 Mission exhibition and Pittsburgh: A Tradition of Innovation, which features the work of George Romero.
Zombie garb and Halloween costumes encouraged! Prize awarded to the most creative or ghoulish costume of the night.
