This exhibition follows the life of David West Reynolds, a New Albany native who turned his passion for adventure and entertainment into a successful career as an archaeologist, a creator in the Star Wars Universe, and a New York Times #1 bestselling author.

As a child in the 70s, Reynolds had an active imagination and a taste for adventure. Small acts of kindness by members of the community—a toy store clerk, a children’s librarian, a middle school teacher—inspired him to pursue his dreams, however wild they might seem. Mirroring the mythical “Hero’s Journey” from the movies that influenced him growing up, Reynolds overcame obstacles to forge an unprecedented career, from excavating ancient ruins to inventing Yoda’s lightsaber. Featuring an incredible display of artifacts, Star Wars Meets Indiana Jones: The Hero’s Journey of Dr. David West Reynolds highlights the importance of imagination as a path to reality, and encourages visitors to pursue what inspires them.
