It’s a golden age of social acceptance for science fiction fans. Twenty years ago, being a sci-fi nerd meant shrinking your social circle and getting shoved into lockers. Now, everyone knows who Khan is, and being into science fiction isn’t even a distinguishing personality trait unless you’re really into it.
If you are really into science fiction, consider checking out Sci-Fi Friday at the Tempe Center for the Arts, 700 West Rio Salado Parkway. The weekly exhibit features pieces from local and national collectors as well as original art, including a cel of Marvin the Martian hand-painted by Looney Tunes animator Chuck Jones. This Friday’s event will also feature a presentation from Todd Spencer of the University of Advancing Technology. Spencer will discuss the past, present and future of human-computer interfaces in pop culture.
The presentation will begin at 6 p.m. and conclude at 7. Admission to the event is free. Visit www.tempe.gov/tca.
