The Art Force 5 welcomes young and old superheroes-in-training to come make their own superhero action figure and customized cape. A huge comic book exhibit depicting the history of comic books alongside equal rights will delight both comic novices and enthusiasts. Visitors will be invited to paint a tile that, when joining forces with hundreds of others, will make some beautiful public art celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the Harlem Renaissance. All free, all fun, and open to all ages.

Also in the house, see Language of Light, an exhibition of neon artworks by eight recent graduates from Alfred University’s School of Art and Design. Curated by assistant professor of glass Sarah Blood and featuring works by Carissa Grace, Astrid Hunter, Bryanna King, Caroline LaCava, Natalie Schults, Olivia Piazza, Adam Taylor and Gil Travers, Language of Light will dazzle visitors every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through July 28.
