Pop culture: Star Wars comes to Seattle in January

Time to start planning your 2015 vacation! From January 31 – October 4, 2015, the EMP Museum at Seattle Center is hosting a Star Wars costume exhibit. The 12-city national tour begins with Seattle and EMP.

Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars™ and The Power of Costume showcases 60 hand-crafted costumes from the first six blockbuster Star Wars films. It was developed by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service in partnership with the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art and in consultation with Lucasfilm Ltd.

Through nine presentational “chapters”—Introduction: Dressing a Galaxy; Jedi versus Sith: Form, Function and Design; Concept and Design for Royalty and Beyond; Symbolism and Military Power; Outlaws and Outsiders; All Corners of the Galaxy: The Galactic Senate; After the Throne: Padmé’s Journey; Darth Vader: Iconic Villain; and Droid™ Design: C-3PO and R2-D2—visitors will be able to explore the creative process behind the names and faces that would come to shape the timeless story of a hero’s journey.
