Chicago Picked as Site for George Lucas Museum Project
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 06.24.2014



The Chicago Tribune George Lucas has picked Chicago, Illinois as the future home of The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. The facility will be housed between Soldier Field and McCormick Place, and Lucas reportedly plans on spending $700 million to build it.

Lucas said on choosing the city, "Choosing Chicago is the right decision for the museum, but a difficult decision for me personally because of my strong personal and professional roots in the Bay Area."

The museum will display Norman Rockwell paintings and Star Wars memorabilia like the original Millenium Falcon model. Below is the official mission statement for the museum:

The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will be a gathering place to experience narrative art and the evolution of moving images – from illustration to cinema to the digital mediums of the future. The museum's seed collection – a gift from founder George Lucas – spans a century-and-a-half and features the images and the mediums that have profoundly shaped our cultural heritage. The foundational collection will continue to grow and evolve as the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art acquires more works.

The museum will open in 2018.
