Mercer Island Community & Event Center | 8236 SE 24th Street, Mercer Island, WA 98040
FREE Opening Night Party: Thursday, March 7, 5-6:30 pm
 
What do superheroes look like? How can we be superheroes? Consider these ideas as you explore this new Community Arts Exhibit! Islander Middle School students in Julie Biggs’s Art II classes designed personal superheroes inspired by the Salish artist Jeffrey Veregge and Ruth Carter, the Academy Award® winning costume designer of Black Panther. Students then collaborated in teams to combine their ideas into eleven culturally rich hero designs. They worked with local artist Alice Finch to transform their superhero ideas into LEGO® posters promoting diversity and social justice. Learn more about this dynamic project here.


Discover the superhero qualities in all of us as you view these colorful works of art. And make sure to join us as we celebrate the students and their work at a free opening party on Thursday, March 7, 5-6:30 pm.

This Community Arts Exhibit is brought to you by Mercer Island Parks & Recreation and the Mercer Island Arts Council in collaboration with Julie Biggs and Alice Finch of Bippity Bricks. Special thanks to the Mercer Island Fine Arts Advisory Council for their support.
