2013 brings the 75th anniversary of Action Comics #1 (1938), the first appearance of Superman and Lois Lane in print. For Men of Steel, Women of Wonder, opening on May 31, 7pm to 10pm, curator Asad “ULTRA” Walker has invited up-and-coming names in DC’s underground and street art scene to bring their vision to modern mythology: comic book heroes.

Participating artists J. Coleman, DECOY, Superwaxx, Gregg Deal, Julian Lytle, Daryl Bennet, Kevin Hunt, ULTRA and CHE KGB will each create a new piece of art inspired by their favorite superhero.

The opening reception on May 31, 7pm to 10pm, will also feature the Sketch Lounge Volume 8. Sketch Lounge is a traveling monthly live art-making event started by artist Nate Lewis to unite and inspire local artists and the creative community. Watch and/or draw with the artists while the Sketch Lounge resident DJ’s Lucy Papaya and THEGRASIS spin.
