STAR WARS exhibit February 9 – May 4, 2008 at The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, Pa.

I love that Philadelphia has discovered how to put art on their steps. The latest manifestation is over at the Franklin Institute where they have a Star Wars exhibit opening February 9 – May 4, 2008

Fantasy and reality join forces in Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination, coming at The Franklin Institute. This is the first exhibition to showcase costumes and props from all six Star Wars films while exploring cutting-edge research and modern technologies that could one day make the fantasy world of Star Wars a reality.
Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination invites visitors into a unique, immersive exhibit environment where they will be absorbed in hands-on experiences to discover how robots and landspeeders exist in the world of Star Wars, and learn about the important roles that imagination and science play in the creation of increasingly sophisticated machines. In two large Engineering Design labs, visitors get to use the knowledge gained in the exhibit to create and test their own speeders and robots. May the Force be with you!
