Strap on your superpowers and super accessories for the February 2 Art Hop at the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts. A family-friendly cosplay party from 5-8 pm (no weapons please) will include art-making, refreshments, a costume contest with prizes for adults, teens, and youth, and the first look at a new exhibition.

Costumes are encouraged under a broad theme of "hero" -- dress as anyone YOU think deserves the title -- perhaps a teacher, coach or family member. There will even be a costume consultant/medic for wardrobe concerns.

My Hero! Contemporary Art & Superhero Action explores superhero imagery and pop idols with perspectives familiar yet new. Some artists imagine the hero as a child, animal, or even an elder--in a wide array of media: painting, photography, drawing, sculpture, and fiber by artists from around the world. You ll find humor and intelligence in these personal, social, and political narratives.
