MARVEL – Universe of Super Heroes
After a super successful start in Seattle with over 350,000 visitors we sent ‘MARVEL: Universe of Super Heroes’ on tour to its next stop in Philadelphia at the world-famous Franklin Institute. Here the show celebrated its grand re-opening in April 2019.
Curated by renowned comic professor Benjamin Saunders along with a team of experts from inside the comic book, fashion and entertainment industry, the international exhibit honors both the creators behind the myths and the fans who sustain them. The spacial, visual and immersive language of the show reflects their visions and creations and takes visitors on a journey through a walkable, 3D comic book.
Combining the art and history that shape the MARVEL universe and its influence on global pop culture, the exhibit features famous artifacts and original art, numerous movie props, spectacular sculptures, as well as immersive and interactive exhibits. Visitors can follow the process from idea to art on different layers of story telling and experience MARVEL’s fantastic creative output from both, the consumers’ and the creators’ side.
