Since Star Wars was first released in 1977, there has been a fandom surrounding the films. Over the past four decades, 10 feature films have been released as well as dozens of books, and even television shows. Fans cannot get enough of the Star Wars universe, and if you are one of those fans, we have an event that you don’t want to miss!
The Detroit Institute of Arts is currently hosting an exhibit called Star Wars and the Power of Costume. This special exhibit takes a look at the artistry behind some of the most iconic costumes from the Star Wars movies. Some of the costumes on display include garb from characters like Chewbacca, Queen Amidala, C-3PO, R2-D2, and Rey. To give fans an inside look into this amazing exhibit, the DIA has teamed up with the Warren Public Library for Behind the Seen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume. This special event will take place on Thursday, June 28th from 6-7 PM at the Miller Branch Library, located in the Warren Community Center.
