I Fought The Law: Storytelling and Pop-Up Museum

So Say We All and San Diego’s Downtown Central Library are partnering up to present a Pop-Up Gallery storytelling showcase on the theme of “I Fought the Law,” this Thursday, 11/12 in the library’s beautiful auditorium.

The way we interact with crime and punishment in these stories varies wildly: Getting away with it, markedly not getting away with it, being falsely accused, the decision not to press charges, the decision to turn oneself in. What forms our complicated relationships with the criminal justice system in this country? Is it a fluke? Or are other factors at play? The dichotomy of experience can be startling at best, unsettling at worst.

Featuring: Emily Price, Julia Evans, Vikki Ott, David Latham, Chris Kennison, and Paul Georgeades.

Each of our stories will have an image or an artifact that relates to the story. That object, or the image of it, forms the pop-up museum component of the event. Think of it as a grown-up version of show and tell.

Other art, provided by visual artists, will also be included in the pop-up museum. Featuring Ryan Bradford, Matthew Baldwin, Bryan Tipton, and work by New Media Rights. Come right after work: Refreshments will be served and the pop-up museum opens for browsing at 5 PM. Stories begin at 6.
