One of the many cool things to see outside of Comic-Con this year is DC Entertainment’s Darkness & Light art show. Featuring original paintings and drawings of your favorite Justice League characters, the show is aimed at raising awareness and funds for the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. The show is part of a bigger initiative called We Can Be Heroes which you can learn about here.
If you’re in the San Diego area, I suggest stopping by to see the art for yourself. It’s running until July 15th at the Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts Gallery. However, if you’re not in the area, or you’d like to see what’s on display right now, I took pictures of almost everything there. Hit the jump to check it out.
Though Collider is primarily a film and television news website, from time to time we post art that we think our readers might take an interest in. Mondo posters have almost become a regular staple, and today we’ve got some art news to share that should be of particular interest to fans of DC Comics. Warner Bros. Consumer Products and DC Entertainment yesterday unveiled a collection of artwork entitled “Darkness & Light: Art Inspired by Heroes & Villains, Hope & Heroism.” The exhibit features a collection of original fine art inspired by the DC Comics universe.
We’ve got a few photos that give us a look at a key set of works including Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, and they’re pretty damn impressive. The exhibit will be hitting the road for a series of public exhibitions that will benefit and raise awareness for the We Can Be Heroes charity. Moreover, there will be a showing at the Michael J. Wolf Gallery in San Diego during Comic-Con. Additional dates have yet to be announced. Hit the jump to check out some of the art.
