The Dayton Art Institute's superhero summer kicks off today with the opening of You Are My Superhero. This special exhibition explores the tradition of comic book superheros and how contemporary artists are putting their own spin on popular characters.

The exhibition is made up of original art and memorabilia on loan from local comic book shops, private collectors and the artists themselves.
