Dayton Art Institute Giveaway: 4 Tickets to You Are My SuperHero

Calling all Super Hero Fans! Right now, The Dayton Art Institute has one of the coolest special exhibits, You Are My SuperHero.  My boys could not wait to see it this summer and begged me to take them.

I really like the exhibit because it has really cool memorabilia and it is very interactive!  The kids loved putting on the face masks along with the Incredible Hulk foam fists.  You can even use an effect word bubble to create your won Super Hero scene.  It is the perfect photo op so bring your cameras!

Also, they have a separate area where you can draw your own comic strip.  My oldest son spent a lot of time drawing the perfect Batman.  However, my youngest son loved sitting in the bean bag chairs reading all of the comic books that are available to read.

You can even find some funny Super Hero inspired humor from Mike Peters cartoons that have been featured in the Dayton Daily News. You just have to see it for yourself to really appreciate it!.

So, I bet you are dying to see it now, right!  You can view it at the Dayton Art Institute through September 23,2012.  Adult admission is $12, Seniors, Students, Active Military is $9, Kids $6, Kids 6 and under are Free.

    Who doesn’t like superheroes? And with a houseful of boys, we see them re-enacted all the time! My kids would LOVE to see this exhibit. Pick me!! :)

  • Kim - September 09, 2012 @ 7:37 pm

    My son is a HUGE superhero fan, and his younger sister has no choice but to watch superhero shows too! She’s also a fan! Who knew!! Anyway, we’d love to go . My favorite super hero is probably….Wonder Woman, but that’s probably showing my age :)

  • Heather Roberts - September 10, 2012 @ 9:58 am

    Huge family with only one bread winner…we would love to take our kids to these exhibits, but we never can afford to take them all (4 kiddos). This is one exhibit that they all would love to wear their capes to! (Mommy & Daddy probably would too!)

  • Emily Roe - September 10, 2012 @ 10:12 am

    My favorite super hero would have to be Wonder Woman, because she has an awesome outfit. But my husband and kids are giant Batman fans!

  • James McQuinn - September 10, 2012 @ 10:19 am

    Love the superheros. I like Superman, Green Lantern… Batman is a little to emo for me… and never a big fan of the Marvel Universe superheros… But who doesn’t like “HULK SMASH”?

  • JennB - September 10, 2012 @ 10:38 am

    My boys LOVE superheros. My five year old has been batman for Halloween for 3 years! We will likely be Captain America and Wolverine this year! We love them all!!

  • Tanya Baldwin - September 10, 2012 @ 11:39 am

    I’m a single parent to two boys that are huge comic book fans and would love to see this exhibit. Their favorites are Batman and The Avengers. This looks like it would be great fun for all of us!

  • Carol Narigon - September 10, 2012 @ 12:46 pm

    Love the superhero theme. Wonder Woman is my current favorite. I found a Wonder Woman board book for my granddaughter recently. I’d love to take her to the DAI’s superhero exhibit for her first ever visit to an art museum. Thanks!

    Ever since my dad first got me into comics when I first was starting to read, I have simply adored superheroes and the whole style of writing that comes with it. When my little sister was old enough to read them, I got her into them too. As a family it’s a huge part of our daily conversations, we pretty well speak comics and their film counterparts! Personally my favorite superheroe is Wolverine. Yes he’s rude, sometimes immature, and quite animalistic, but I admire him so much. He was the first superheroe that I was ever introduced to, and I was hooked immediately. He is just so relatable as a character. He has been through so much, and has a part of him that he can’t control no matter how hard he tries. This may have turned into a rant, but I just want to take this time to thank you for the opportunity. Visiting this collection would be a huge highlight to my family, and to me, by giving us the chance to connect again through a medium that we have always loved. Thanks again!

    Auqaman wasthe official superhero of our wedding, but several members of the Justice League were present for the festivities. So our family of 5 began with a touch of superhero goodness and 4 tickets would be awesome!

  • Nancy - September 11, 2012 @ 12:12 pm

    My favorite superhero was always Superman as a kid. I would love to take my kids to see this exhibit. With my husband deployed, it is hard for me to find things that would really interest myseven year old son without his daddy here. I think this would be something that would be the talk of Skype conversations for weeks to come. Thanks for the information!

  • Su N - September 11, 2012 @ 1:38 pm

    my favorite super hero is spiderman! i’d love to see the exhibit because i’d love for my daughter to be exposed to this art. i like that it sounds very interactive.

  • Su N - September 11, 2012 @ 1:39 pm

    This would be an awesome weekend adventure to spend with the kids and husband who are only getting to see dad one day a week right now because of work. Thank you for this oppurnity to win!

  • Ryanne Gingerich - September 12, 2012 @ 2:33 pm

    I love Superman…always have since I was a little girl. I think it is about seeing a superh hero for the 1st time. I would love to see the exhibit myself but also to see my husbands and sons reactions to it (who also are very into superheros).

  • Alma S. - September 13, 2012 @ 3:04 pm

    Batman is my kid’s favorite superhero. She would FREAK to see all the costumes and play in the interactive area.
