The Cleveland Public Library and The Ohio Center for the Book are hosting a summer-long Superman exhibit, “From Cleveland to the world in a single bound: The 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel,” at the Cleveland Public Library from June 14 to Sept. 14.
The exhibit will showcase Superman regalia, memorabilia, photographs, and various paraphernalia from Mike Olszewski, president of the Siegel and Shuster Society. The library’s own collection of Superman books, graphic novels, photographs and collectibles will also be on display.
“Superman was created by the creative minds of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster right in Cleveland’s Glenville neighborhood,” said Felton Thomas, director of the Cleveland Public Library, in a press release. “Celebrating 75 years of Superman is another reason to visit our main library and make it a great summer day in downtown Cleveland.”
The Glenville branch library will also host Superman family day from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 22. Superman enthusiasts will have the chance to make their own superhero cape, mask and comic book.
