Dangerous Lullabies is a group fine art exhibition that explores the curious allure of things that frighten us. Artists from across the country have conspired to fill a historic mansion with paintings, sculptures and fine art creations which examine the beauty found in the ashes of terror and the magnetic pull of things that are disturbing, on-edge or dark. The exhibit will be at Crystal Lake’s Lakeside Arts Park in the Dole Mansion, an intricately detailed 1800’s building, which is rumored to be haunted. 30 + contributing fine artists. Full artist list and details at http://xculturearts.com/
This is the third year for the Dangerous Lullabies Exhibition, join us opening night to see why it's back by popular demand!
Parking is free.
