URBAN LEGENDS: PLAYGROUND LORE TO CULTURAL NORMS Exhibit

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.

The exhibit will feature work in multiple genres from students, staff, alumni, and Chicago community artists. 

Artwork will be featured on the Library's 1st Floor, as well as virtually at
