Spit Spreads Death: A Mütter Museum Pop-Up!

What happens when disease strikes a city of two million people, sickening half a million and killing more than 12,000 in just six weeks and 20,000 in six months? During the fall of 1918, in the last months of World War I, Philadelphia hosted the largest parade in its history. Within days, influenza casualties overwhelmed hospitals.

Join us on Wednesday, September 25th for an infectious lecture, influenza exhibition, and Mütter Museum Pop-Up at Tattooed Mom!
FREE // 21+ // UPSTAIRS

Robert D. Hicks, Director of the Mütter Museum, will lead a talk about the disaster that claimed more than 16,000 lives in six months, as well as an exhibition of relevant artifacts from the museum collection, both of which highlight the museum’s most ambitious exhibition, Spit Spreads Death: the 1918-19 Influenza Pandemic in Philadelphia.

Join us for a brew, burger specials, and a bit of local dark history—PLUS the chance to win tickets to the museum!

Exclusive talk begins at 6:30PM.
Can’t make it? Don’t miss out on the exhibit, and make sure to catch the museum’s interactive commemorative parade with Blast Theory UK on September 28th!

You, Me, and Astrology // Free Fringe Philly

Performer Nikki Hartung is bringing her show You, Me, and Astrology to Tattooed Mom as part of Free Fringe Philly!

8:30pm Show // FREE // 21+

Sometimes life events happen that make you want to understand yourself and the world around you on a deeper level… to make sense of the chaos that flows around us and within us… and sometimes, we just want to be entertained. Western horoscopes can be just that; Guidance, explanation & gosh darn fun. In this work in progress show, Nikki explores the 12 zodiac signs through characters, personal essay and song in the hopes of –like many 20 something, city-living millennials– understanding more of the world around her and herself. Mixed as well with some dance, real horoscopes and — a face mask?! #taurusbaby”

**Please note this show is a work in progress. Like our lives… so be kind :)**

In Your Dreams: A Collection of Artwork Inspired by Dreams

Every night we dream.

We may not always remember our dreams when we wake up, but when our conscious mind takes a rest our sub-conscious mind kicks into gear and often takes us into other worlds. Our dreams are often scenarios that seem so strange but natural, while other times our dreams are so far from the truth they terrify us into waking up. No matter what we dream about, random things throughout our days can bring us back to a vivid memory from our sleep whether we’d like to or not. Sometimes these are pleasant thoughts and other times they may be traumatic, but at the end of the day they aren’t real.

The theme of this show is “In Your Dreams,” and it is a way for us as artists to cope with our dreams through our artistic expression. Our works are relating to our literal dreams while sleeping, but some of our pieces also reflect on our metaphorical “dreams” or aspirations. Ms Amethyst is bringing you this show inspired by one of her favorite artists, Dali, who’s most famous works were reflections of his dreams. The collection of artists that have been selected are very talented Philadelphia artists who come from different neighborhoods, but all share common dreams.
