This Halloween, decorations have a vintage, ghoulish edge

Leering pumpkins with smiles askew. Warty witches you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley. Spiky-backed black cats on the prowl for a throat to tear out. This year, Halloween is sporting a vintage style that’s a far cry from the smiling moons, benevolent bats and friendly ghosts for whom Halloween is a benignly spooky holiday.

Back in the earliest days of the last century, Halloween was a festival meant for adults, and that meant adult parties.

The artwork and images produced for this mature audience largely came out of Germany and the U.S. and were often exquisitely crafted with edgy images that were boldly dark and deliberately unsettling.

These early images have proved irresistible. Just look around. This Halloween, they’re fueling a growing collectibles market for true vintage Halloween pieces and a surging interest in reproduction vintage Halloween decor.

MGM Resorts HCC Center for Culinary Arts in Holyoke lands $229K grant from state

HOLYOKE — The state has granted the Holyoke Community College MGM Culinary Arts Institute, now in its final stages of construction at the Cubit Building downtown, $229,500.

The center is due to open in November.

Gov. Charlie Baker announced the funding this week as part of a total of $9.5 million in Workforce Skills Capital Grants given to 32 community colleges, high schools and educational institutions around the state. He made the announcement at Nashoba Valley Technical High School in Westford.

In Holyoke, HCC will use the money to buy 32 computer workstations, networking infrastructure, and software programs unique to hospitality and culinary industry workplaces, according to a press release. Money will also be used to buy kitchen equipment such as refrigerators, grills and fry tables, ice machines, skillets, griddles, steamers, and dishwashers.

“All the items purchased with the grant will directly support workforce training for occupations within the growing hospitality and culinary arts industry of western Massachusetts, including preparing workers for MGM Springfield, one of our major employer partners,” said Amy Dopp, interim vice president of Institutional Advancement in a prepared statement.

Dopp said the new equipment will allow the college to increase the number of seats available in its credit and non-credit programs and be able to customize instruction to meet the needs of local employers.

The 20,000 square-foot center will occupy the first and second floors of the Cubit Building. HCC’s credit programs in Hospitality and Culinary Arts will relocate from the main campus to the new facility for the beginning of the Spring 2018 semester.

MGM Springfield, which needs 750 to 900 trained hospitality service staff for its casino resort scheduled to open in Springfield’s South End in Sept. 2018, is looking to Holyoke Community College’s new Culinary Arts Center in the Cubit building as a source of future employees.
