Are You a Man of Steel or a Woman of Wonder? Find Out During This Exhibit
Join us at the San Antonio Museum of Art for a chance to check out Man of Steel, Women of Wonder!
Men of Steel, Women of Wonder, organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, examine the art world’s responses to Superman and Wonder Woman, ranging from their Depression-era origins to today’s contemporary interpretations.
Two of the most popular icons in American pop culture Superman and Wonder Woman, first appeared in times of economic adversity and world war. These characters quickly emerged as embodiments of American morality, representing “truth, justice, and the American way.”
The exhibition features more than seventy works including paintings, photographs, photographs, installations, and videos by a wide range of artists, such as Layla Ali, Dara Birnbaum, Renée Cox, Mary Beth Edelson, Fahamu Pecou, Pope.L, Mel Ramos, Norman Rockwell, and Jim Shaw, among others.
The San Antonio Museum of Art enriches lives through exceptional experiences with art. Its mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and interpret significant works of art, representing a broad range of history and world cultures to strengthen our shared understanding of humanity.
