Christopher J Johnson is a member of the Meow Wolf Arts Collective, and has been an

instructor with CHIMERA since 2010, working with youth in every school in Santa Fe

County on Meow Wolf exhibits and productions. Johnson’s new collection of poetry,

&luckier, includes 64 poems written over the span of ten years. Johnson’s introspective

poetry dissolves the “I” and explores issues of impermanence and illusion.

All proceeds from the book launch and poetry reading benefit CHIMERA. As Meow

Wolf's work stands as living testament to the potential behind connecting creative

community, CHIMERA serves to pass this knowledge on to community and future

generations through programs that connect kids and their families to Meow Wolf's

creative paradigm, and directly to the artists themselves -- as visual artists, software

developers, electrical engineers, digital fabricators, interactive designers, sound

engineers, and more. This event benefits CHIMERA's Open Studios, On-Site Workshops,

and In-School Instruction through which CHIMERA provides free choice-based arts

learning, access to hands-on, multi-disciplinary skills-based training, and collaborative,

collaborative engagement through art, technology, creativity, and play.
