Oakland makes push to steal Lucas Museum from Chicago

SHARE Oakland makes push to steal Lucas Museum from Chicago

George Lucas said it’s “a possibility” that the proposed Lucas Museum of Narrative Art would have to find a home outside Chicago, and now Oakland is trying to jump into the competition.

CBS San Francisco reports the Bay Area Council is trying to lure the museum.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf wrote a letter to Lucas, saying like your rebel alliance, it has battled great adversity against terrific odds, referring to the city of Oakland itself.

In January, the Los Angeles Times reported that L.A. is among the locations Lucas would consider if he can’t build the $400 million museum in Chicago.
