Men of Steel, Women of Wonder + Interview with Artist Laylah Ali
Superman and Wonder Woman are two of the most beloved icons in American pop culture. Created in times of economic adversity and world war, these characters quickly emerged as beacons of American morality and equality, representing the ideals of truth, justice, and the American way. The artists in Men of Steel, Women of Wonder, on view at Crystal Bridges, use Superman and Wonder Woman to explore national identity, American values, social politics, representation, and the concept of humanity. In this episode, host Stace Treat has an exciting conversation with Men of Steel, Women of Wonder curator Alejo Benedetti. Then, Alejo sits down with Laylah Ali, an artist featured in the exhibition, to discuss her process and artworks featured in the show. Men of Steel, Women of Wonder is on view at Crystal Bridges through April 22.

Quality sound, quality info
What an informative podcast from our beloved museum. Looking forward to future episodes!
Nice to hear that Cystal Bridges works with architects (designers) and that your are looking into real American history, way back Colonialism.
I am so glad to hear MW as the silence of the Museum breaks and the great stories may now be told. Getting the historical background correct matters to me. Keep telling stories from behind those curved walls. Don’t forget the beautiful work in the Library.
