Under the Influence: The Art of Beer
November 3, 2012 @ Co-Prosperity Sphere

[ From the website]

Maria’s Packaged Goods & Community Bar and Mash Tun Journal are teaming up with Chef Won Kim of Brew Ha Ha and a bunch of brewers to bring you a new visual and culinary arts happening called Under The Influence: The Art of Beer. This counter-cultural culinary and art event  takes place Saturday, November 3, from 5-10pm, at our gallery, the Co-Prosperity Sphere (3219 S Morgan Street). You can read about the underground craft beer scene in Chicago in the current issue Mash Tun Journal.

The Under the Influence show features work from artists and designers inspired by the aesthetics of craft beer and how it intersects with food, culture, and society. The art exhibition comes paired with  pours of over 2 dozen beers including brews from Revolution Brewery, Great  Lakes, Founders, Firestone Walker, Sixpoint Brewery, Duvel, Ommegang, and 6  guest brewers.

This curated selection of art, food and beer is our first foray into experiencing ways artists of all stripes are influenced by craft beer. The exhibition features mixed media, photography, painting, live painting and live silk screen printing.

Visual Artists include:
Michael Kiser, Ben Laskov,  Sixpoint, Peter Boutsikakis, Sam Alcarez, Nathan West, Eric Olson,  Scott Marvel, Chris Hammes, Revise cmw, Joey Potts, Shawnimals, Ruben Aguirre jr., Luke Pelletier, Veggiesomething, Czr Prz, Solo rm, Uriel correa and others
