Fairy tales of wonder and magic abound in cultures throughout history and around the world. These stories weave identifiable elements, including special tests, objects, heroes and heroines, terrifying places, and magical creatures that are rich with symbolism and meaning to be used for unique social lessons for children of any age. This multi-disciplinary exhibit will highlight the Museum’s collection together with contemporary art to illustrate how fairy and folk tales are archetypal stories that allow for ongoing inspiration and interpretation in popular culture.
Exclusive to the Everhart, this multi-disciplinary exhibit will explore the animal powers of comic book superheroes and supervillains. The exhibit will highlight the Museum’s natural science specimen collection, as well as feature contemporary art and historic artifacts to illustrate how these characters influenced American history and global popular culture, as well as have interpreted contemporary social issues.
