The i.d.e.a. Museum in Mesa will soon welcome superheroes as well as the real-life kind during its a hands-on exhibit called “Caped Crusaders & Everyday Heroes.” The exhibit is scheduled to run from February 10 through May 28.
The exhibit, sponsored by the city of Mesa and the Arizona Commission on the Arts, “will unmask the history and science behind pop culture and real-life heroes through art and hands-on activities," the city said. Patrons will learn about heroes from comic books, TV, movies and myth.
“Heroes and heroines inspire us and give us hope," i.d.e.a. Museum Executive Director Sunnee O’Rork said. “Our exhibition sets a scene for guests to discover facts about how our heroes came to be and to invent their own superhero.”
Patrons will also be invited to take part in some fun and educational activities.
“We want our visiting children and families to experience art in fun ways that also help them to learn more about the world around them,” O’Rork said
