Most people associate Superheroes with Marvel Comic characters such as Spider-Man, Iron Man and the Hulk. This summer the Heard Museum is looking to educate its guests on American Indian legends and super heroes that teach life lessons and make a great impact on American Indian history.
In the Super Heroes exhibit at the Heard Museum kids will be able to create their own superheroes by making superhero costumes, play Native video games and learn what it really means to be a super hero. According to the Heard Museum, American Indian super heroes inspire many American Indian artists and graphic novelists in their work.
The exhibit features work from American Indian artists of re-imagined American Indian super heroes. There are also clay figures on display, graphic drawings and an interactive section for kids to create their own superhero costumes.
