George Lucas’ whopper of a museum offer for the Presidio

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

That’s quite a jaw-dropping offer from the Star Wars director, who doesn’t have enough wall space at his Skywalker Ranch in Marin to display his massive art collection, and so says he’s willing to spend up to $300 million of his own money to build a new museum at the Presidio. It would be a one-of-kind museum devoted to visual storytelling as outlined in a 20-page proposal to the Presidio Trust last week—one of 16 bids the trust has received for use of a prime piece of park property. That is, the former commissary site at Crissy Field. AP; LA Times
