Exhibition Name:

America's Monsters, Superheroes, and Villains

Description: America's Monsters, Superheroes, and Villains explores how American monsters, superheroes and villains have impacted American culture from the 1960s to the 1990s and became iconic characters reflecting America’s changing values and social stresses. In different guises, monsters, superheroes and villains have always been part of America’s cultural fabric. They scare us, thrill us, and most importantly, help guide us through the most terrifying and exhilarating moments of our lives. In this exhibit attendees will see Dracula, Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s monster, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and others that have awed American audiences for generations. Also featured are American superheroes such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Captain America, and Luke Skywalker, all of whom have become archetypal American cultural figures across the decades. Finally, super villains are featured, including Darth Vader, the Joker, Lex Luthor and the Green Goblin.
