Marvel Studios has been entertaining their fans with incredible storytelling for the past ten years. In that time, we saw arcs building up to monumental superhero ensemble events like the Avengers films.
And now, Mondo will be celebrating all of that with “Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years” gallery show. Check out the first look at one of the pieces that will appear in the show below.
Here’s more info from Mondo’s website:
Mondo Gallery is thrilled to announce Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years, an epic celebration of the twenty films to date in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Featuring new contributions from some of Mondoâ€™s most sought after artists as well as previously released pieces on display, the show promises to be one of the mightiest in Mondo Gallery history.
â€œAs a devourer of pop culture with a heavy lean on movies and comics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the ultimate dessert,â€ said Mondo Creative Director Eric Garza. â€œWhat Marvel Studios has accomplished over the last ten years is nothing short of remarkable. Theyâ€™ve given us heroes that are big and small, mighty and cosmic while telling incredible stories that are often sweepingly epic while at the same time nuanced and personal. We are incredibly excited to celebrate ten years of monumental filmmaking and characters courtesy of the mighty Marvel Studios. Make Mine Marvel!â€
The show postcard above reveals CÃ©sar Morenoâ€™s print for the first IRON MAN. The striking image highlights an iconic moment of the MCUâ€™s first hero building his first suit, laying a foundation for dozens of characters to eventually join Earthâ€™s (and the Galaxyâ€™s) mightiest heroes in the greatest interconnected universe of films in cinematic history.
Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years kicks off with an opening night reception on Friday, October 12th from 5PM – 10PM. The celebration continues with a Family Day party the following morning (10/13) from 10AM – 12PM, which will include face painting, family photos ops, coffee & baked goods, and more! Costumes encouraged!
The show will be open during regular gallery hours, Tuesday â€“ Saturday from 12PM – 6PM, through October 20.
Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.
As an owner of a few Marvel Cinematic Universe pieces like Rich Kelly’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Kevin Tong’s Ant-Man, Martin Ansin’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Matt Taylor’s Avengers: Infinity War, I can say that these pieces are worth every single penny. So to see new pieces of older films is very exciting.
