Object Stories: Mythos

Myth/ology

Modern Takes on Ancient Stories

JUN 20 – OCT 11, 2015

Myth/ology illustrates how mythological characters and tropes have inspired Portland’s present-day storytellers in the comic book, gaming, and cosplay communities. Through their unique twists on one of the oldest and most universal forms of human communication, these storytellers’ creations are a glimpse into how we understand modern culture.

This exhibition was produced by members of the Museum’s Youth Council in collaboration with the 2015 Mythos Challenge and the special exhibition Gods and Heroes. Find out more about the Mythos Youth Council and the Mythos Challenge.
