Star Wars: The Art of the Starfighter

SITES, in a partnership with Lucasfilm, Ltd. and The Smithsonian Affiliates, brought the craft of moviemaking to life in a dynamic exhibition. It featured a full-scale, thirty-five-foot model of the Naboo starfighter used in the making of Star Wars: Episode I, The Phantom Menace.

In addition to the spacecraft, the exhibition included two small models, interpretive text panels, images, a brief documentary, and an interactive kiosk with software from Lucas Arts and Lucas Learning.

This Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service exhibition toured from 2001-2002.
