Journey to the Uncanny Valley

Journey to the Uncanny Valley

Public domain You scared?

As the folks who run the Denver Museum of Miniatures, Dolls and Toys like to remind the public during the spooking season, it's “an old house filled with dolls. Old dolls. Some of which are clowns.” Consider that an open invitation to clown around when the museum hosts A Journey to the Uncanny Valley, a talk about the creepy-doll phenomenon that's illustrated with physical examples from the collection. Come in costume if you like, and enjoy this hair-raising experience from 6 to 7 p.m. Friday, October 13, at 1880 Gaylord Street. Tickets are $5 to $7 at eventbrite.com; proceeds go toward finding a new location for the museum, which loses its longtime lease at the Pearce-McAllister cottage at the end of next April.
