"Once upon a time, there was a little boy who decided that drawing superheroes was his only realistic option, if he couldn’t actually become one." -- Alex Ross

Featuring cover art, sketches, life-sized head busts, and more, Marvelocity: The Art of Alex Ross celebrates one of the greatest artists in the field of comic books.

From his home in the Chicago area, Ross has revitalized classic superheroes into works of fine art by illustrating characters such as Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Storm from the X-Men, the Avengers, Black Panther and many more for nearly 30 years.

In addition to highlighting original art from his most recent book, Marvelocity, visitors will also learn about how Alex Ross developed into a great illustrator through his childhood drawings, preliminary sketches, paintings and 3-dimensional head busts of characters in the Marvel Universe.

Your timed ticket entry includes general admission to the Museum, McCormick House and Elmhurst Artists' Guild Gallery.
