A SUPER night at the Y:ART Gallery…befitting the “SUPERHEROES” exhibition opening being celebrated. Scores of folks crammed the Highlandtown gallery to get first look at how dozens of local artists rendered their interpretations of what makes a superhero.
The party began in the street outside, where the party overflowed. The show itself started right inside the door and extended throughout the gallery…as did the crowd. Renowned storyteller Mama Linda Goss – a 2019 National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Award recipient – provided one of the evening’s highlights by telling stories of some of her personal heroes.
