Heard Museum's new superheros exhibit
Super Heroes: Art! Action! Adventure!
Opens today at moon
Heard Museum, 2301 N. Central Ave.

In this exhibit, kids will be able to become their own superhero. They will choose their super power and create their superhero costume. They will then embark on exciting adventures, including an animal-companion interactive experience, a Native video game and other adventures along their "super" journey.

Tales of superheroes inspire people to bravery and spark the imagination of both children and adults. Superheroes may be animals, humans or magical beings who speak, transform and use their special powers to fight evil and help others.

Many American Indian legends feature animal heroes of great power who teach life lessons. During the last few decades, some of these classic superheroes have inspired American Indian artists and graphic novelists to create new Native superheroes who confront evil and defend good in their communities.

COST: Adults $23, senior (65+) $18.50, students (with ID) $12.50, children ages 6-12 $12.50, children ages 2-5 $5, American Indians (with tribal ID) $5, children younger than 2 and Heard Museum members FREE. Admission includes a $5 gate fee to view this exhibit. More important admission and exhibit information is at

Kindness Safari at the Zoo
On Saturday, May 16th, KIND team members in Phoenix (and in 18 other cities across the country) will be hosting a kindness safari at the Phoenix Zoo from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to show kids how easy and fun doing kind acts every day can be.

The kindness safaris will include a scavenger hunt booklet which features interactive kindness activities inspired by animals (i.e. see a bear; give somebody in your family a bear hug!). In addition, attendees will receive flowers upon leaving to pass on to someone else as well as a take-home kindness kit that comes in a complimentary lunch tote that kids can color on, which is of course filled with yummy KIND snacks.

You can obtain a coupon for a free child's admission with the purchase of one adult admission online at We hope you can join us for a day of kind-filled fun!
