Current Exhibition:  MONSTER STORIES | Sept 14-Jan 5


The Monster Stories exhibition celebrates the 200th anniversary of the novel, Frankenstein, by exploring the monster genre in popular culture, literature, mythology and the idea of the “other” in society. Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking work continues to spark relevant discussions about science, technology and humanity. Inspired by the ongoing popularity of the genre, the Gallery at TCA features works from local and national artists, toys and memorabilia from private collections and a range of public programs that reflect on timeless questions such as “who is the real monster?”

Exhibiting Artists: Manny Burruel, Anne Coe, Fausto Fernandez, 
Matthew Hoelscher, Molly Idle, Chuck Jones, Ed Kennefick and Joe Ray. 
Also featuring Enrique Arciniega Campos, Earl Staley and Bob Camblin, Allan Otho Smith, Enrique Chagoya, Alejandro Colunga and David Botello from the ASU Art Museum. Special collection pieces courtesy of Dr. Larry and Holley Thompson, Mike McEwin, Emmett Potter and Chuck Jones Center for Creativity.
