‘Star Wars and the Power of Costume’ Exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts

A galaxy far, far away comes to Detroit during the 'Star Wars and the Power of Costume' exhibit at the DIA, on display May 20-Sept. 30, 2018.

Is your child strong with the force? Then bring your little Padawan to the Detroit Institute of Arts to check out the creation of the Jedi Masters and Sith Lords that came before them during the Star Wars and the Power of Costume exhibit.

This exhibit, which officially opens on May 20, brings George Lucas’ vision of a galaxy in turmoil to life with 60 original costumes from the first seven films in the saga. Kids will be happier than Anakin in a Starfighter as they get up close to Queen Amidala’s regal gowns, Chewbacca’s fur, droids like R2-D2 and C-3PO and even the iconic black armor worn by none other than Darth Vader.

But the exhibit doesn’t stop there. Kids will also get to take a look at the creative process behind each of these costumes and what it took make them and learn how the costumes relate to some of the artwork on display at the museum.

Star Wars and the Power of Costume is on display at the Detroit Institute of Arts through Sept. 30, 2018. The DIA is open 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays-Thursdays, 9 a.m.-10 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays-Sundays.

All guests interested in this exhibit must purchase a ticket and register for a time slot in advance to visit the exhibit.
