Among the most compelling heroes we encounter in movies, comics, and books are those that don’t fully conform to our expectations that they behave altruistically or nobly. This Art to Lunch will look at a couple of figures that perform heroic actions despite any perceived moral shortcomings. 

All summer long, Art to Lunch will be celebrating the heroic and the villainous as a part of the special exhibition programming around Heroes & Villains
