My Hero: Contemporary Art & Superhero Action
Saturday, May 21 – Sunday, August 14, 2016

Hwang,Cheong-ah_Captain AmericaDiscover the secret life of your favorite superheroes in the sprawling collection of international artworks that is My Hero. The exhibition pays homage to these universal idols while prompting critical questions about their God-like stature.  Artists 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. Attend our Preview Party Fundraiser!

My Hero: Contemporary Art & Superhero Action was organized by Carrie Lederer, Curator of Exhibitions, Bedford Gallery, Lesher Center for the Arts, Walnut Creek, CA.
