The Marion Art Center is pleased to announce its upcoming exhibition, Thor’s Hammer, with works by sculptor John Magnan, featuring emerging artists André Olivier and Sarah Swible. From artist John Magnan:
Thor's Hammer is a socio-political exhibit inspired by and based on Marvel Comics imagery (knowledge of Marvel comics or movies not required!). Each sculpture re-imagines an aspect of Marvel Comics in the context of current issues. The exhibit follows in the Marvel tradition of using fantasy imagery to comment on the human condition and examine some of today's social challenges. The art questions whether the fabric of democracy can survive the pull and tug of the many struggles confronting us today.
The show runs from February 21 through March 28, 2020.
