If you joined us at our Superheroes/Supernatural Halloween Bash or walked past the Museum over the weekend, you already know that our statues were all decked out in superhero costumes this year to celebrate our special exhibition Superheroes in Gotham. A big thank you to everyone who voted in our statue costume contest!
The winning look for Abraham Lincoln this year was Oliver Queen, a.k.a. Green Arrow. Isaiah Bradley, alias the Black Captain America, was the top choice for Frederick Douglas. Check out their transformations below!
Halloween might be over, but Superheroes in Gotham is just beginning! Join us in the coming months for special family tours of the exhibition. On these educator-led family tours, participants will discover the special connection between New York and some of America’s most iconic superheroes. Families will also delve into the secret identities of these not-so-secret heroes and create their very own alter ego portraits!
