Star Wars Celebration 2017 Art Show

Press Release:

For this year’s Star Wars Celebration, which comes to the Orange County Convention Center on April 13-16, more talented Star Wars artists than ever before were considered for inclusion in the Celebration Art Show, one of the event’s most popular features. To qualify, artists must have previously created Star Wars artwork for Lucasfilm or for a Lucasfilm licensee. Though each was well-established and highly-regarded in the Star Wars community, a select number had to be chosen to keep the Art Show at Celebration a reasonable size.

To answer the challenge of selecting a limited number of artists from such a large, capable field, Lucasfilm’s Celebration team brought together an A-list of Lucasfilm talent, including experts in Star Wars characters and continuity, to do the judging. While the competition was fierce, a final set of artists were selected to participate in the 2017 Celebration Art Show – a big congratulations to the following artists: 

  • Adrianna Vanderstelt
  • Alex Buechel
  • Brad Hudson

About This Convention: Detroit has a very strong connection with comic conventions and fandom. Some of the earliest fandom magazines came out of the Detroit area in the late 1960’s and the Detroit Triple Fan Fair was the first convention of its kind. The “triple” stood for movies, comics, and science fiction. Detroit Fanfare is both proud and excited to bring back home some of the major participants that helped to grow the comic industry into the behemoth it is today. There will panels and discussions where the people who started so much will have a chance to discuss the early days, and reflect on their memories of the great stars that attended the convention. They will provide rare pictures and original drawings of some of the masters of the medium.
There will also be a Zombie Walk – “Pre-Show” the Morning of October 30th , and a Blood 4 Comics – October 30th & 31st for the American Red Cross Detroit Chapter plus many other exciting events for the Comic Book lover in you.
