516 ARTS announces SUPERHEROES: Icons of Good, Evil & Everything in Between, a multi-media, group exhibition about heroes, villains and other less-definable examples of human possibility, exploring notions of identity both real and imagined. Using iconic images to examine the ways in which we absorb, react to and adopt heroic archetypes, the exhibition examines how notions of the “super” inspire, define and rationalize behaviors. Through mixed-media sculpture, painting, video, textiles, photography and on-site murals, it investigates the profound effect images generally seen as pop culture ephemera have had on conceptions of race, morality, civil responsibility and human achievement.
