The museum proposed by George Lucas to showcase visual storytelling and house his art collection is one of three development projects being considered for a plot of park land at the foot of the Golden Gate Bridge, a newspaper reported Tuesday.
The Lucas museum would include the collection he has amassed over more than four decades and says includes illustrations by Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish. Lucas intends to finance the project himself.
The Presidio Trust has not yet set a deadline to select the winning proposal.
“There’s no question that this is one of the most spectacular sites in the world,” said Craig Middleton, executive director for the trust. “We really need to be thoughtful about which proposal best fits in, both in terms of the project and the program.”
