Lucasfilm & HP Celebrate 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' With The 'Art Awakens' Program

Lucasfilm and HP celebrate 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' with the 'Art Awakens' program, where amateur artists can submit their 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' inspired art on

Five lucky winners of the 'Art Awakens' contest, chosen by a judging committee that includes members from Disney, Lucasfilm and Industrial Light and Magic, will have their art featured in a professional gallery exhibit later in the year. The winners will also have the opportunity to be flown out to Los Angeles to attend the VIP opening night, among other prizes from HP.

In November Gallery1988 will host a three-day 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' art exhibit. All new original pieces will be auctioned off in the name of Star Wars: Force for Change to benefit UNICEF Kid Power, which gives kids the power to save lives. By getting active with the UNICEF Kid Power band, kids earn points which unlock food packets for malnourished children around the world.
