Marvel superhero artwork by Alex Ross coming to Sheboygan museum

SHEBOYGAN – The works of Alex Ross, referred to by some as the “Norman Rockwell of comics,” will soon be on display in Sheboygan.

The Sheboygan County Historical Society & Museum has announced it will be one of the first places in the country and only current Wisconsin venue to host “Marvelocity: The Art of Alex Ross.”

The exhibit opens April 2 and runs through June 25 at the museum, 3110 Erie Ave., Sheboygan.

Considered to be one of the greatest comic book artists of all-time, Ross has created some of the most iconic images of superheroes. The exhibit is largely based on Ross’ 2018 book, “Marvelocity: The Marvel Comics Art of Alex Ross.” The retrospective coffee-table-style book, published with Chip Kidd, demonstrates the depth of Ross’ talent in bringing the characters of the Marvel universe to life. His creations of familiar characters such as Spider-Man, the Avengers, and others bridge the space between reality and fantasy.
