From works inspired by campy B movies to those addressing contemporary psychological fear, It’s Alive! explores the many approaches that book, paper, and print artists use to express horror.

This exhibition is presented as part of the bicentennial of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. This global celebration encompasses a wide variety of public programs, exhibits, art projects, and learning opportunities exploring the novel’s colossal scientific, artistic, cultural and social impacts.

It’s Alive! is presented in correlation with programming at The Bakken Museum.
