SuperMonster市 City! developed a solo museum exhibition presented by the Goldstein Museum of Design at the University of Minnesota. This exhibition broke records for attendance and contributions at the Goldstein Museum of Design.
‘America’s Monsters, Superheroes & Villains’, reflects on the social and political backdrop from the 1950’s to the 90’s that influenced the story lines of Monsters, Superheroes and Villains of this era. For toy geeks, the exhibition also examines some of the advancements in materials and manufacturing and how these influenced the designers of models, toys and games.
Toys and figures in the exhibit are from the 1960s to the 1990s and include: Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, Wonder Woman, Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolf Man, King Kong, Star Wars characters, Dungeons and Dragons and many more.
In addition to toys, the exhibit also features vintage posters and original packaging highlighting a range of graphic design style across the decades. Finally, 5 monitors display media clips of vintage movie trailers and commercials featuring many of the items in the exhibit.
America’s Monsters, Superheroes and Villains runs thru January 3, 2016 at the Goldstein Museum of Design. Hours are Tue. – Friday 10 – 5; Sat & Sun 1:30 – 4:30
