Firefly Exhibit in the Library

It is rare to come across a Western set in space that is as perfectly executed as Joss Whedon's science fiction series, Firefly. The series title refers to a type of space ship, specifically a Firefly-class transport ship. The nine characters featured in the series are crew members on just such a vessel, called Serenity.

Carey Meyer, the production designer for Firefly, was instrumental in bringing the vision of Serenity to life. To learn more about the production process, the Armacost Library is currently exhibiting set design drawings and a model of the space ship Serenity.

In addition, on Thursday, May 29th at 3:30 p.m., a reception will be held in the Library to celebrate the exhibit. Carey Meyer will be present to answer questions.

This is one of my favorite shows but unfortunately I have to miss the event tomorrow. How long will the exhibit be up?
