George Lucas is hoping to create a Lucas Cultural Arts Museum focusing on the on creativity that has been used to share imagination.  As a local, George Lucas was born in Northern California, and his first museum he ever saw was in SF.  Many of the locals even gossip about if the Oakland Cranes inspired the AT-AT walkers in Star Wars.  It’s only fitting that Lucas decided he wants make Presidio in San Francisco the location to share a legacy of history of art and imagination with the community.  

This vast collection at the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum will include art from the 19th, 20th and 20th centuries.  The art will feature the inspirational storytelling from the visual arts including: illustration, children's illustration, comic art, cinematic art and design, digital art, digital animation and special effects.   The traveling exhibits that have been seen by over 10 million globally will hopefully soon have a home in SF.  The goal is to inspire young people to envision new stories and to excite them in learning technology.
