Considered one of the greatest artists in the field of comic books, Alex Ross has created some of the most iconic images known to fans today. For nearly 30 years, he has revitalized classic superheroes into works of fine art by illustrating characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Storm from the X-Men, the Avengers, Black Panther and many more. The exhibition includes the artist’s preliminary sketches, childhood drawings, life-sized head busts, and illustrated covers of comics. Marvelocity: The Art of Alex Ross was developed by the Bess Bower Dunn Museum of Lake County, Illinois.
