My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action: My Heroes Roundtable

April 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

For decades popular culture has been fascinated by superheroes – their superhuman capabilities, their desire for truth and justice, and their ability to save the day. Their storylines have captivated many, and their imagery has become contemporary idols throughout the world. Experience the escapades of iconic superheroes with this pumped-up collection of international artworks in a variety of media at the International Museum of Art & Science (IMAS), opening on Saturday April 15, 2017.

As contemporary idols, superheroes provide a rich source of inspiration for artists around the world. Exhibition My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action celebrates and re-envisions the possibilities that exist when you have a magic cape, lasso, or some superhuman power that changes everything. The variety of interpretations in My Hero is vast and challenging, dark and humorous, familiar yet new!

My Heroes Roundtable on April 22nd from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM will feature members of the arts and psychology community as they discuss ways superheroes have impacted society.
