Reinterpreting famous and infamous characters from comic book history....

Fly, leap or zoom over to Creativity Explored for a special exhibition straight off the pages of your favorite comic book. Studio artists reinterpret famous saviors of the universe and those who would thwart them. Laron Bickerstaff gives a new look to heroes like The Flash and Green Arrow, while Edana Contreras contributes an ode to Oracle—the only major super heroine in a wheelchair. Michael Bernard Loggins imagines his own cast of super characters including Super Toothbrush Hero, Super Serious Man and even Super Average Girl—"Trying to stay as average as she can be." Curator Francis Kohler of Creativity Explored also contributes food for thought placing text panels throughout the show to highlight real life heroes and villains of the disability movement.

According to a review in the SF Weekly, ".....there's some fantastic art here. Perhaps the standout is Warren Jee's portrait of Bat Girl. Viewed up close Jee's technique is breathtaking. It's as if the Expressionists decided to stop painting whatever it is they were painting and focus on D.C. Comics heroes instead."
