URBAN LEGENDS: PLAYGROUND LORE TO CULTURAL NORMS Artist Panel Discussion

Join us for an eveing with the artists of our Urban Legends: Playground Lore to Cultural Norms exhibit, which includes work in a number of mediums and genres from campus and community artists, writers, filmmakers and more.

Urban legends and other types of contemporary folklore develop from the morass of the cultures they inhabit--the stories any society tells often a indicator of their obsessions, fears, and social mores. Whether it's the stories we learned as children, or ones we still believe to this day , they offer a stunning glimpse into our psyche, as well as an anthropological romp through the bizarre, the perverse, the haunted, and the mundane. Join us this semester as we not only revel in the wealth of urban folklore from not only American culture, but beyond, as well as create discussions of how such stories tell us as much as we tell them.
