Nucleus has invited a diverse group of talent to celebrate their favorite Star Wars moments and characters. Join us as our gallery is transformed into a galaxy far, far away with a collection of over 100 original works inspired by the saga.

Special Collection by Ralph McQuarrieIn tandem with this exciting group exhibition, we will be showcasing a collection of production paintings by the late Ralph McQuarrie, whose works inspired many of the characters, creatures, transportation concepts, setting designs and overall appearance of A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

"This is our most desperate're our only hope." We need your help naming this show. Share your best ideas on our Facebook and you will win prizes* if your idea is selected! Full contest rules: You may offer more than one idea, but please offer only your best. If the chosen idea has been repeated by more than one contestant, the prizes will be awarded to the first contestant to suggest it. We will choose the best idea on April 2nd at 6pm (PST). Nucleus has the right to decide not to use any of the suggested ideas. However, we suspect the Force is strong with you.

Registration is now open at Each relay spot is $150, which includes a customized Hasbro lightsaber, exclusive Course of the Force swag bag and the experience of a lifetime.  Runners are encouraged to be creative and wear their best Star Wars gear.
