Join us for a jam-packed opening night as we explore the pop culture career of our first Top Gun—George Washington—featuring live sketching, silent auctions, original art and rare comics, and keynote speaker, former Marvel Editor in Chief, Jim Shooter.

Discover how Washington’s persona has been showcased throughout pop history, going from traditional reenactments of famous events to appearances in modern times with the likes of Superman, Captain America and other famous heroes—becoming a mythical figure in his own right and a metaphor for good and justice in these tomes. This exhibition highlight Washington's continued relevance to our collective past, present, and future.

He is really, if you think about it, our FIRST super hero! 

Original artwork and comics on display will feature pieces by Michael Golden, Arthur Suydam, George Evans, George Perez, Neal Adams, Kurt Swan, Graham Nolan, Jose Marzan, Jr, Daniel Scott, Fred Fredericks, and many more! 

Venue: Fraunces Tavern Museum
