Dec 11, 2015 - Jan 18, 2016

Near Mint: In Lucas We Trust is an exhibition featuring the works of 20 artists who were commissioned to wreak havoc on copies of the blank variant covers of issue 1 of Marvel's 2015 Star Wars comics. These artists, some long-term fans of the franchise and some interested observers, will use the comics to explore their hopes, fears, disappointments, and/or thrills about the role of Star Wars in contemporary popular culture, all one week before the premiere of Episode VII.

Participating artists include Owen Beckmann, Jeff Bell, Sean Buchanan, Sherry di Filippo, David Eichenberger, Heather Gordon, Rachel Herrick, Warren Hicks, Justin Moore, Andrew Nagy, Patrick Parker, Chris Prince, Shaun Richards, Lile Stephens, Megan Sullivan, Bill Thelen, Derek Toomes, Lauren Turner, and Jason Whitman.
