Subjects range from hopeful creation stories to the dark soul of the infant demon known as the “Tiyanak”. “Folked up” is an illustration of the dual roles of folk mythology and urban legend both as cultural baggage and identity-affirmation. Perhaps, contrary to the rules of mythological entities, our demons and deities can, in fact, cross moving water and stay with us, changed in form, but not in essence.

At the Co-Prosperity Sphere, 3219-21 S Morgan St.
Co-Prosperity School W/ Cream and Co.
The Co-Prosperity School is an Artist-Run School that has met regularly at the Co-Prosperity Sphere since 2010. We run 8 week sessions. Participants find a place where intelligent dialogue on art takes place. Some find new tools to help their career. Others form friendships. The class also offers people a space to discuss what is currently happening art-wise in Chicago. Best of all we think participants are pleased to meet the people that shape the contours of our art ecology.
Our School is geared towards artists who have graduated from art school and are now making work outside that support system. Our format is also a reaction against the continuing education institution, the post (or non) MFA education.
Start time is 6:30 at the Co-Prosperity Sphere, ends around 930
