Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Like the movie series that inspired it, Star Wars and the Power of Costume is proving a big hit at the Denver Art Museum, with out-of-this-world attendance figures. But the exhibit is about more than star power; it "basically is looking at form and function," says Saul Sopoci Drake, exhibitions project director at the Smithsonian, which pulled the show together. "What that means is showing these guys as they are originally intended to be: in action." Photographer Brandon Marshall got in on the action at the Star Wars exhibit, which runs until April 2.

Now see the complete Star Wars and the Power of Costume slideshow.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
