Project Overview

An interactive, academic exhibit about superheroes (and America).

Superhero Academy was a ~1300 sq ft. interactive museum exhibit exploring how superhero comics have reflected and influenced current events in the United States since their creation in 1938. It was open to the public for a total of 6 weeks in 2018.

The exhibit was separated into 11 areas focused on key US eras, each looking at how hero comics and films explored current events of the time. We also provided a variety of ways for guests to discover their superpower, their tragic backstory, and try out their new powers for themselves.
