Recovering from Arson at The Satanic Temple Salem
At 10:30 pm on Friday June 10th, The Satanic Temple's headquarters was set on fire.
View the full surveillance footage of the arson here.
A suspect was arrested and charged with arson, destruction of a place of worship, and civil rights violations. People were inside at the time, but fortunately, no one was hurt.
Throughout this ordeal, our neighbors and the City of Salem have been incredibly supportive and we are very appreciative of their goodwill. The front entrance of the building suffered extensive damage, and we have begun repair work.
Salem Art Gallery will be closed until these repairs are complete. All event tickets will be refunded, no gallery admission or gift shop sales will be possible during this time.
Any support to offset the lost income, enhanced security measures and repairs would be appreciated.
