“AVATAR: The Exhibition” Opens This Summer at Seattle’s Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum
For 2011 the Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum could be re-named the “Experience Movie Project” with word that the world imagined in the highest grossing film of all time will be on display beginning early this summer at one of Seattle, Washington’s most family- and budget-friendly attractions.
AVATAR: The Exhibition opens June 4, 2011 at Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum and runs through September 3, 2012. This unique exhibit will join another sci-fi fan favorite, Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition, currently transporting EMP-visitors to other galaxies through March 4, 2012.
At AVATAR: The Exhibition, fans will have a chance to get a first-hand look inside the spectacular world of Pandora via authentic props and costumes, interactive displays, concept models, and sketches from the blockbuster film. Organized by EMP|SFM and developed in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment.
AVATAR: The Exhibition came to be at the encouragement of EMP|SFM founder Paul Allen who is a good friend of AVATAR’s director, James Cameron. These two imaginative dreamers discussed the idea of an AVATAR exhibition at which time Allen approached the museum staff to determine whether it might be a good fit for EMP|SFM. Given both the science fiction and fantasy angle, and the groundbreaking processes to develop the film, EMP|SFM felt that it aligned perfectly with the museum’s mission. For EMP|SFM, which is situated just below Seattle’s Space Needle, it’s always good to have friends in high places.
