PASADENA– On March 3, 2018, the public will enjoy free admission to the exhibition Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, & Southern California, which explores the history of science fiction in Southern California from 1930 to 1980, and how it interacted with the advances of science, the changes in technology, and shifts in American society. Curated by Nick Smith, president of Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society, the exhibition will feature historic artifacts, fine and graphic art, books and ephemera, and historic photographs.  This project was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Visit www.calhum.org. Additional support comes from The William Hayward Pickering Memorial Fund & Archive and the Art Directors Guild.

This program is supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Project Grant.
