About the Event

Ms. Lahna Turner, long time curator of MOMA, cordially invites you to an evening masquerade at the elegant Park Victorian Hotel in Auburn, CA in celebration of the museum’s 100th birthday.  Her guest list includes Nor Cals most inspired portrait photographers & models. Whether whimsical or chic, dress to impress. And be warned: not every guest has creative & collaborative intent.  A murderer will be mingling amongst us with only one thing on their mind...revenge


  • Our murderer “kills” by delivering a hard & deliberate wink to their victim
  • After receiving a death wink, victims must behave normally for 30 seconds before keeling over and dying in any fashion their choosing
  • Dead victims cannot resume as ghosts until a photographer captures their crime scene photo for investigators
  • Survivors (if there are any) can attempt to oust the murderer at the end of the shoot
  • No accusations can be made until the end of the slam
  • Survivors who oust correctly will win a prize


Wardrobe on location by the Auburn Discovery Shop

Hats & accessories by Robyn's Vintage Apparel & Jewelry

Flower crown & bouquet artistry by Auburn's Petals & Sweets Florist

Prize by Auburn Alehouse to the creative who rocks the theme hardest

Free mask upon arrival (but feel free to bring your own!) *won't need to wear it the whole time

Chic or whimsical vibes (think Great Gatsby or Labyrinth). *Masks will provide a fun element but participants aren't expected to wear it throughout the shoot. Although this slam comes with a murder mystery twist, portrait photography is the focus. We're asking participants (including photographers) to come dressed in theme, if possible. Models can reserve outfits from the Auburn Discovery Shop (2376 Grass Valley HWY) and Robyn's Vintage Apparel & Jewelry in (157 Sacramento St. Auburn, CA) during the week of the slam. After the slam, we'll award a prize to the participant who rocks the theme hardest. If you arrive without a mask, one will be provided for you. 

*As always, we celebrate individuality & creativity: please feel free to express that uniqueness. In other words, it's ok to get weird


This invitation is required to attend. We work hard to curate a balanced & diverse group of creatives. To reserve your spot, please register after reading & agreeing to How This Works on our website at Your ticket will become non-refundable after July 26th. We're always open to suggestions for other models or portrait photographers to consider inviting, please let us know!
