Come discover the exhibition, Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, and Southern California, which ventures into the world of science fiction that was created right here in Southern California. Explore the stories of the writers, artists, and fans who used their talents to help us imagine the future. Kids who land in the Rockets & Flying Saucers craft workshop can create their own space vehicle with Art 2 Go from 1:00 to 4:00 pm.

All life forms are invited to the opening, and visitors are encouraged to use their imagination when creating their costume for this otherworldly afternoon.
