DC Entertainment brings a unique art exhibit to Mercy Corps headquarters this summer. A signature initiative of DC Entertainment's We Can Be Heroes campaign, this exhibit was organized to raise awareness and funds for the worst hunger crisis in 60 years in the Horn of Africa where over 8 million people are in need of immediate assistance. See original art featuring your favorite Justice League characters, including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, and learn how DC Entertainment partnered with Mercy Corps and other leading aid organizations to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa.
The collection of DC Comic-inspired artwork ranges from paintings to mixed media and is integrated with striking photographs of real-life heroes -- families in the Horn of Africa. This will be the first time the Darkness & Light exhibit is open to the public.
Shown above is an acrylic and spray painting on canvas by Jim Lee, entitled Batman: Justice by Jim Lee.
