My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action

"The Catvengers" by Jenny Park, digital print

Nov. 1 - Dec. 31

Upper Gallery, Art Museum of WVU 

Art Museum of WVU | Free and open to the public

My Hero presents a collection of international artworks that explore iconic superhero imagery, along with reimagined interpretations of our classic heroes. The artists in the exhibition both pay homage to these universal idols, and also present critical questions about their popularity and God-like stature. Some artists in the exhibition spin the fantasy further by imagining the hero as a child, as an aging being and even as an animal.  My Hero: Contemporary Art & Superhero Action was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, California.
