The 1980's-90's were a time of widespread morality policing spearheaded by evangelicals and their fictional memoirs of surviving satanic sex cults: policing everything from Rock 'n Roll to role playing games. No one was safe, Rainbow Bright sported pentagrams on her face, He-Man, Masters of the Universe was endorsing Pagan practices, the ThunderCats were inspired by “heathen gods,” and the Smurfs were “depictive of dead creatures” because of their blue skin with black lips. Even diapers weren’t safe. In 1985, Procter & Gamble found itself in the unusual position of having to hold a press conference to deny that they were funding a Satanic church. Since 1982, the company had been the target of anonymous accusations claiming their logo—a man in the moon surrounded by 13 stars—was secretly the mark of the devil.


Raymond Buckland founded The Buckland Museum of Witchcraft and Magick in 1966. After visiting the late Gerald Gardner and his collection on the Isle of Man, Raymond was inspired to start a collection of his own. While working for British Airways, he was able to acquire many of the artifacts in this collection from all around the world. He initially displayed his museum on a few shelves in the basement of his Long Island, N.Y. home. However, over time, Raymond’s witchcraft collection rapidly grew to well over 500 artifacts, ranging from Ancient Egyptian ushabtis to documented artifacts from the Salem Witch trials. This was the first museum of its kind in the United States with an anthropological approach to the world of folklore and the supernatural.

This show is directed under the supervision of Lake Witch
