Art work created by members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County’s Elkhart Clubhouse is on display at the South Bend Museum of Art through the month of April.
It’s part of the museum’s POP! SBMA program, a community exhibition showcasing ideas around identity through the creation of paper-craft projects that take the space of a collectable figurine.
The project asked members to come up with an identity for their figure and to think about what that identity means. The Elkhart Club members, ages 5 though 15, partnered with the museum in December to create the pieces.
Members talked about real-life superheroes and how they help the community. They were then challenged to identify their own super powers and how they could use them to help each other.
Members took a trip to the museum earlier this month to view their projects and participate in other activities. The POP! SBMA exhibit is in the Weikamp Gallery through April 30.
