This exhibition won the City Pages (Minneapolis) Best Museum Exhibit of 2015!
SuperMonster市City! was co-founded by Master Collector David Barnhill and Curator and Managing Director Stephen Yogi Rueff. Exhibition items are selected from Barnhill’s collection of approximately 200,00 toys, posters, games, films and more and Rueff examines them from a social and political context.
Mostly they think Monsters, Superheroes, and Villains are fun, believing we all love getting scared by misshapen Monster creatures of the night like werewolves, vampires, and the Frankenstein monster. We love Superheroes from the Golden age to today! And we get a rush from the terror our Supervillain foes bring us.
