Look, over the harbor! It’s a synagogue, it’s a museum, it’s the JMM and the Lewis! This dynamic duo of Jonestown museums has teamed up for an epic event that celebrates heroes and the people who draw them. At the JMM, experience “ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books, 1938–1950,” and transform into your alter ego, complete with DIY disguises, super snacks and signature drinks to make you more powerful than a locomotive. In a flash, shuttle over to the Lewis Museum and see children’s book illustrations come to life and share tales of courage from the exhibition “Defining Moments: Works by Bryan Collier.” Listen to cool jazz and mix and mingle with heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr., Rosa Parks and Langston Hughes. Cash bar (including one drink ticket) and refreshments will be available at both sites.
