While the Art of Star Wars exhibit is best known for its 2000-2002 tour, a much earlier (and smaller) exhibit with the same name was displayed from December 27 1994 - March 12 1995 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA.
The Art of Star Wars exhibition explores the creative process involved in the making of the Star Wars movies, tracing the development of the Star Wars universe from George Lucas’ concept to finished shot. The exhibition includes sections on concept design, model-making, sound, visual effects, costumes, creatures and droids.
The display includes key objects from the original Star Wars trilogy as well as from Episode One. It constitutes an exciting, dynamic and informative display, which reveals the truly pioneering activity of the artists involved in creating the Star Wars universe.
