On February 2, the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts (KIA) opened a temporary exhibit of contemporary superhero art. This gallery features artists around the world, including an artist from Keego Harbor, Michigan. a wide range of art forms are exhibited from a sculpture of Batman to giant knitted pajamas.

Walking into the gallery, an array of sculptures are on the left from a giant statue of Batman, to miniature painted wooden carvings of a variety of heros. Next are contemporary photographs, depicting average civilians dressed as heros. One of these images featured Cat Woman taking care of toddlers in a cramped apartment, while another picture portrays a pizza man clad in Superman’s cape and tights.

Aside from photographs and sculptures, a diverse group of paintings and prints is exhibited. One grouping of images had contrasting aspects, such as a picture of Batman holding an L to his forehead with the words “Be proud to be a super loser” printed underneath. Another contemporary piece portrays the heroes and villains of Marvel fighting against those belonging to DC Comics.

A favorite featured piece pictures Batman and Robin Williams, as a spoof of the famed super duo Batman and Robin. This painting has a classic image of Batman next to Mrs. Doubtfire, one of the late Robin Williams’ characters.

This is my first year on the Newspaper staff. I have been wanting to be involved in it for a while, but I have never had room in my schedule. Although I am more into the photography aspect, I am also excited to write an assortment of articles.
