Teke Party   High Relief Mixed Media   24" X 48"  unframed                       $6000

As a TKE fraternity member (Frater) at Southern Illinois University, this is a conglomeration of memories of our frequent "Teke Parties." They were known to be rather bawdy, yet rapturous affairs, as you can see. Frat life worked especially well for guys under the legal drinking age in Illinois at the time, 21. They could offer a highly coveted alternative to the girls on campus than just going to the movies.
