Superheroes Group Show Details

We're really looking forward to your contribution to Superheroes, a group art show collaboration between D-Structure and Society6.

Superheroes transcend age, gender, and location. Every young boy and girl dreams of the awesome and magnificent. From our childhood comic book collections to our fascination with superheroes in popular culture. This is a chance for you to interpret the wonderment of Superheroes how you see fit (or completely misfit)!

All you have to do is 'apply' for the collaboration, create your Superheroes inspired piece, and post it to your Studio for sale as an art print. We'll then curate both the final collection that will be displayed as a group show at D-Structure San Francisco opening Friday, May 6th 2011, as well as an extended virtual collection that will be featured in the Society6 Shop sometime in April.

Some directions to help you navigate this collaboration:

1. Please apply for Superheroes, only if you at least intend to contribute. You do not have to be physically present in San Francisco to participate, all S6 members are encouraged to contribute.
2. Create your piece and post it to your Studio at anytime, but by no later than Friday, March 11th to be considered for the group show and the virtual collection.
3. Please use "Superheroes SF" as the title of your post.

Along with D-Structure and some other special guests, we'll be curating the final collection as we go.

Will you need the original art for the show or will you be using prints from S6?
Justin Cooper commented on Friday, January 28, 2011 5:20pm
We're going to try and mix it up at the show and have originals and S6 prints Rob.

oh ok, i was freaking out a bit
James E. Hopkins commented on Sunday, February 13, 2011 6:20pm
For some reason I had it in my head that March 4th was the deadline to apply. So if I failed to apply by the February 4th deadline my work will not be considered?
Cayetano Valenzuela commented on Monday, February 28, 2011 8:06pm
When is the opening? I see May but not a specific date. Just curious.
