Growing up in the 1970s, artist Ryan Singer (Diné) remembers living on his reservation in Arizona and raising funds for a class field trip to see “Star Wars” when he was four years old. He remembers the long bus ride into town and the sight of the movie theater when they got there, decorated with cardboard cutouts of the picture’s heroes, villains and spaceships. He could barely contain his excitement as he held onto his “Star Wars” cup while John Williams’s triumphant theme music boomed throughout the auditorium, ushered in by those famous yellow words. Thus began his lifelong love of the franchise and the genre it changed forever.
