Hands-on Heroes & Villains exhibit at Woodbury Art Museum


Woodbury Art Museum opens a new exhibit on July 9, 2019, that invites visitors to add color to the work of professional fantasy artists. “Heroes and Villains: How Myth Made Fantasy” encourages young and old to draw on the walls.

“The museum is pleased to partner with curator and UVU faculty and DC comic artist Chad Hardin (“Harley Quinn,” “Wonder Woman,” “Justice League”) to create an exhibition that invites the public to co-create original works of fantasy art with professional artists. “This unique hands-on exhibition for the entire family features original artwork depicting famous stories and characters from Aladdin to the Hobbit,” said Lisa Anderson, director of UVU’s Woodbury Museum of Art.

A concurrent exhibit features the work of the art of Greg and Tim Hildebrandt. The Hildebrandt brothers are perhaps the most well-known and prolific artists of the fantasy genre. “Masters of Fantasy” is a rare exhibition of work featuring original paintings, illustrations, and poster design created for the publications of “The Lord of the Rings,” “The Wizard of Oz,” “Alice in Wonderland,” and other famous tales. The Hildebrandts have brought to life some of the most iconic stories including “The Lord of the Rings,” “Star Wars,” and “Clash of the Titans.”
