Heroes and Villains, a National Juried Exhibition
Heroes and Villains
a National Juried Exhibition
As children we learned that heroes are brave and true, and villains are evil and duplicitous. It was comforting to think of them as opposites, but as we grew the lines got blurry, and who was a hero and who was a villain sometimes wasn’t obvious. This show is all about what heroes and villains mean to you. They can be nationally known, or in your home. They can be corporations or movements. They can be archetypal or nuanced. Show us your personal heroes and villains.
All mediums welcomed.
