Kenneth Restrepo Presents: Origins Art Exhibit

Sunday, July 22, 2018

2:00 P.M.

This unique exhibit has derived from childhood inspirations of comic book art to adult interpretations. Kenneth Restrepo is a former United States Marine, served two tours in Iraq from 2000-2005. Kenny and his wife own and operate Leathernecks Tattoo Shop in Brooklyn, New York since 2011.

What began as a project for NYC Comic Con turned into a humbling endeavor. He is now a member of the Humble Heroes Team, a group of men and women that don Superhero costumes and visits children in hospitals, bereavement groups,  schools or anywhere a child is in need of encouragement, inspiration and good cheer.

In his spare time, Kenny is creating new costumes and continues to grow in both his style and technique. His work can be seen on Instagram @tattoosbykbar, or the shop website LeathernecksTattoo.com.

This exhibit will be on display from July 22 to November at the museum.
