Los Angeles Now In The Mix For Lucas Museum Of Cultural arts Location


It seems George Lucas is starting to get a good choice for locations for his latest dream, the Lucas Museum of Cultural Arts.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has launched a campaign to woo the Lucas Museum of Cultural Arts, a legacy project of “Star Wars” creator George Lucas, stepping into what had been a two-way battle between Chicago and San Francisco for the director’s private art collection.
Garcetti is offering a site in Exposition Park, the equivalent to Chicago’s Museum Campus and home to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a National Historic Landmark that hosted two Olympic Games and still hosts University of Southern California football games.
“It’s in South L.A. right next to USC,” said Molly Fowler, a spokeswoman for Garcetti. “And in there is a number of cultural destinations for the city of L.A., including the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Natural History Museum (of Los Angeles County), the (California) Science Center and the California African-American Museum.”
