2017 “Altered Barbie” Art Show: Super Heroes | SF

The annual Altered Barbie Exhibition is a creative re-use art show where people transform these icons into not-so-everyday art reflecting our current society.

This quirky art show is back after a two year absence. The 2017 theme is Super Heroine & Hero so that the artistic people of San Francisco can make it all great again.
