Marvel Studios is celebrating their 10th anniversary this year (in case you didn't know) and is partnering with Mondo for an art gallery celebrating the first 20 films in the MCU catalog. Running from October 12th-20th at various times, the gallery will feature work by some of Mondo's most prolific artists, and show off some of their previous limited poster art and new works. The announcement also showed off a new Iron Man poster by artist César Moreno.
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 Mondo'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.
"As a devourer of pop culture with a heavy lean on movies and comics, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the ultimate dessert," said Mondo Creative Director Eric Garza. "What Marvel Studios has accomplished over the last ten years is nothing short of remarkable. They'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!"
The show postcard above reveals César Moreno's print for the first IRON MAN. The striking image highlights an iconic moment of the MCU's first hero building his first suit, laying a foundation for dozens of characters to eventually join Earth's (and the Galaxy'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 – Saturday from 12PM – 6PM, through October 20.
Mondo Gallery is located at 4115 Guadalupe Street in Austin, TX.
