The Underground Theatre proudly presents A HAPPY LIFE. Works by Charles Mee have the propensity to showcase the extraordinary in the ordinary everyday life. A Happy Life is no exception to this rule. Mee sets his sights on reminding us that we are all artists and that we all create art every day, each in our own ways. In true light-hearted fashion, accompanied with a cacophony of lights, sounds, and a few cookies for good measure. Join our merry band of revelers guided by our host, The Therapist, as we go in search of our own Happy Life. $10

A Happy Life


Through Aug. 10, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.

The works in the show act as a sartorial diary from Brown’s personal archives. The status symbols of her childhood—door-knocker earrings, rope chain necklaces, and gold-capped teeth—function here as semi-abstractions that are both playful and meditative. The use-value of these objects has been eliminated in favor of their value as time capsules of another era. The objects memorialize the aspirations of wealth in American hip hop culture as an aesthetic phenomenon with important visual manifestations. 0
