If you’ve been following the saga of the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum, then you know that Chicago and San Francisco have been competing to become the permanent home for the facility. There is a new development, as Los Angeles has now tossed its hat into the ring.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has offered a site in Exposition Park:
“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.”
San Francisco has offered a location near the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge, and Chicago proposed two parking lots between Soldier Field and McCormick Place near the Museum Campus on Lake Michigan.
George Lucas and his Chicago-based wife, Mellody Hobson, are expected to make a final decision sometime this summer.
Here is an overview of what to expect from the museum:
