It’s a bird

it’s a plane

it’s Acme’s next art event, and this time around we celebrate 75 years of “The Man of Steel.” And if you aren’t already, this art show opens just in time to get you pumped for the new Superman reboot set to open this summer. Comic book nerds (er, enthusiasts) will showcase artwork inspired by the Superman universe – expect to see work by local artists including Jamile Johnson, Amy Watkins, Brian Demeter, May Hayes and others. Consider this your chance to renovate the Fortress of Awesome-tude and design it the way you always imagined. Those of us who aren’t blessed with artistic talents can enjoy interviews and live coverage by the Played Out Podcast, nerd-prov interactive comedy performances by Six Degrees Improv and a Kid Corner for the tyke Kryptonian fans. Admission is free and all ages are welcome, as long as they abide by “truth, justice and the American way.” – Kelly Chambers
