Figures in Action and their Latter-day Saint Influence
Figurines date back to the Stone Age, but in the Twentieth Century the entertainment industry turned figures into big business.
Today multiple companies produce a vast number of action figures and curios related to film and print.
Latter-day culture has permeated the edges of popular culture for generations with member-driven creators in all aspects of the media.
The new exhibition in Special Collections on level 1 of the library features items from television, K.I.T.T., and Cylons, as well as film, like the N.S.E.A. Protector. There are also items from comic books and graphic novels such as Dendo.
There are even church related items such as Nephi and missionaries.
It will run through the month of May.
The exhibit is open to the public and is viewable during regular Special Collections hours.
Monday through Thursday 8:00 am to 9:00 pm.
Friday 8:00 ma to 6:00 pm.
Saturday 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Admission is free.
