Historic Groundbreaking for the $1-billion Lucas Museum of Narrative Art

George Lucas, Mellody Hobson and Steven Spielberg stopped by South Los Angeles earlier today to greet a few hundred local dignitaries, community partners and friends in celebration of the historic groundbreaking for the $1- billion Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.
 
The Lucas Museum, which found its forever home at Expo Park in the heart of CD 9, will allow visitors to experience the power of narrative art across all mediums, including painting, illustration, comic art, photography, film, animation and digital art. The 300,000 square foot non-profit museum will feature collection galleries and exhibition spaces displaying original works of art from world renowned artists, cutting-edge digital technologies and daily film screenings in two state-of-the-art theaters. It will also provide much-needed access to arts education and programming for our local youth. Thank you for choosing CD 9 to be the permanent home of the Lucas Museum; we’ve been waiting for this opportunity a long time!
