Washington, DC (July 23, 2013)Washington Project for the Arts announces The Art of the Super Hero - Revisited, a group exhibition organized by Lenny Campello exploring our cultural fascination with masked men and caped crusaders.

The Art of the Super Hero - Revisited features photography, painting, and mixed media work by F. Lennox Campello, Carla Goldberg, Simon Monk, Dulce Pinzón, and Andrew Wodzianski. The exhibition opens with a reception in the Capitol Skyline Lounge on Friday, August 2, 2013 from 6-8pm and runs from Friday, August 2 through Sunday, August 25, 2013.
