Superheroes in Wilder Park

May 6 – July 31, 2023

On the weekend of Art in Wilder Park, we will unveil a newly commissioned public art installation of 8 life-sized superhero sculptures by area artists and youth groups.

Discoverable throughout Wilder Park will be new works by Rafael Blanco, Nez Garza, Dave Pryor, and Charles Williams Jr. along with pieces created by Robert Apolinar with Elmhurst University students, Esmeralda Bolivar with the Elmhurst Pride Collective, John Nester with Glenbard North High School students, and Gloria Rivera with B. Unity mentees.

The outdoor installation will be a bold preview of the Elmhurst Art Museum’s summer exhibition Marvelocity, featuring the iconic work of comics legend Alex Ross.
