Discover the secret life of your favorite superheroes in the sprawling collection of international artworks that is My Hero. The artists in the exhibition both pay homage to these universal idols and present critical questions about their God-like stature as they re-imagine and newly interpret iconic superhero imagery.
Some spin the fantasy even further by imagining the hero as a child, as an aging being, and even as an animal. The variety of interpretations in My Hero is vast and challenging, dark and humorous, familiar yet new.
