BB-8, Yoda and an Ewok, along with 66 original costumes from the first seven movies in the Star Wars™ saga are some of the highlights of the exhibition “Star Wars and the Power of Costume” at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) May 20–Sept. 30, 2018. In addition, more than 150 pieces and sketches document the creative process, encompassing the essence of George Lucas’ vision and the exciting challenge of translating his iconic characters into a dynamic reality. This is a ticketed exhibition, admission to the DIA is free to residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. Residents of Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties receive $5 off all adult tickets.

Visitors will get an up-close look at costumes of some of the most beloved—and infamous—characters in cinema history, among them Queen Amidala, Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Stormtroopers, Chewbacca, Han Solo, X-wing Pilots and Droids, including C-3PO and R2-D2.

Visitors can watch the designers and actors through several videos and experience the processes of concept artists and costume designers through interactive opportunities. Interpretation of cultural and historic context by Smithsonian scholars is also part of the experience.
