The Jewish Museum of Florida is having a comics exhibit starting later this month. The exhibit details are online and below. I’ll be presenting on October 21 on some of the resources available on comics for teachers.
Zap Pow Bam – Super Heroes of the Golden Age of Comics 1938-1950
OCTOBER 16, 2007 – APRIL 30, 2008
Look! Up in the Sky! It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane! It’s Zap Pow Bam, a colorful dynamic exhibit that immerses visitors in an interactive world of Super Heroes, highlighting the Jewish creators of comic books. These are America’s timeless icons like Superman, Batman, Captain America, Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman – including the phone booth where Superman changed his clothes and a Batmobile. The exhibit offers a unique perspective on the way pop culture portrays issues and how identity and culture can shape popular opinion. Fun for visitors of all ages and backgrounds. Originated by The Breman Museum, Atlanta.
