when one of our friends said he was heading to the Denver Art Museum to see the Star Wars exhibit.... would we like to go with.... we all jumped right on in!!!
And now!! I can't wait to go back to see the Western Art one - when it opens!!
So..... I wasn't quite sure what to expect, as I did not do my homework - we got to the museum an hour before our Star Wars tickets and headed into an art gallery. Where I was promptly teased for taking photos of the wood work, and the picture frames - as opposed to the art!!
You all know what I am thinking right?
The art work was amazing, but the detail..... wow!!
And then it was time for us to go into the Star Wars Exhibit!
Wow - had I known what it was I would have totally been there earlier! It was all the costumes and pageantry of the films!!
Remember - I came to quilting from the Garment industry - and wow - I was blown away!!! and sort of jealous that I hadn't found some of those fabrics!!
Oh and the other thing? These actors are SOOOO tiny!! I mean short and tiny!
You may recognize this outfit, but being up close are reading about the fabrics , what they used and why was really interesting.
And then seeing the bead work?
This was on a dress that was seen for maybe 10 minutes?
And all the velvets had emblems on them.
I have to admit, that when I watched the films the first time - I did not notice this detail!
Chewy and Han -
My absolute favorite characters
( along with 2 characters of my own!)
it's interesting - to see up close, even the detail of the fabrics on the little creatures
This one was just for me -
I want a robot
I want a robot that cooks, cleans and does laundry
That is not to much to ask is it?
Oh - and if they follow me around, I want them to write down the thoughts
I think to myself.... the ones that I say - now don't forget this....
Then they will remember, and when I remember that I forgot -
they will remember what I wanted!!
This was one of Padme Amidala dresses
Oh my stars!!
I think we spent a few hours in there - or maybe more
The boys were hungry .... but sometimes that is not a good indicator of time!
After they ate we went back in to some of the other exhibits....
and of course - I took more photos....
for next week..... ha ha
