The San Antonio Museum of Art will present the special exhibition Men of Steel, Women of Wonder (MOSWOW) on June 21. Organized by Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the exhibition examines the art world’s response to Wonder Woman and Superman, ranging from their Depression-era origins to today’s Contemporary interpretations. MOSWOW features more than seventy works including paintings, photographs, installations, and videos and will be on view in the Cowden Gallery until September 1, 2019.

“The exhibition examines the way superheroes personify our collective hopes and dreams,” said Katie Luber, the Kelso Museum Director. “From their earliest incarnations in 1930s comic books to the most recent megahit Avengers: Endgame, it’s no wonder so many artists have found inspiration in these cultural icons, exploring the relationship of Superman and Wonder Woman to national identity, American values, social politics, sexuality, and the concept of humanity. We believe these works will provoke powerful conversations.”
