Capes, Gods and Superheroes is a visual art exhibit featuring new work by Varina Rush that playfully explore the relationship between religion, idolatry and fan fiction. The works ponder the following questions: What do gods and mythical heroes symbolize to the people that worship them — and why are capes so cool? Are Superman and Jesus really the same guy in a different guise? Do Batman and Buddha have the same utility belt?

Rush's quirky allegorical creations begin with images of spiritual deities superimposed and mashed-up with images of superheroes. Rush adds oil, watercolor and acrylic to complete each piece. The result is innovative, provocative and culturally relevant new work. In addition, Rush has created a mural in Frenetic Theater's exhibit hall.

On view through Sept. 6.
