My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action, an exhibition for all ages that examines what it means to be a superhero and celebrates the possibilities of superhuman power. This intriguing collection features work by contemporary artists from around the world, working in a variety of media including sculpture, printmaking, and photography.
