  • From Giglamesh to Cú Chulainn, Odysseus to King Arthur, from the ancient mists of time to our modern day, humans have held up and passed on the stories of our heroes and legends.  Whether those figures are more myth and legend, or true dyed-in-the-wool heroes of the modern day, their stories have stood the tests of time and serve as inspiration and guides to each of us.  But a hero doesn’t have to be well known to be a hero, and a legend doesn’t have to be taught in a classroom or even written down to exist.  We invite our member artists to reflect on the heroes and legends who have inspired their own lives.  Were they found in the pages of a comic book or a history book, or are those heroes and legends part of the fabric of your family history or chance encounters in your own life?  Whoever they are (or were), let them inspire you once more as you create an artistic tribute to them, or to their messages to you, in any medium.  Let’s keep their stories alive!
