George Lucas announced on January 10th, 2017, the $1 billion Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will be located in Exposition Park in Los Angeles, California, holding court alongside the California Science Center, Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County and California African-American Museum. It will also be adjacent to the director’s alma mater, the University of Southern California.

Although the project is very much in the beginning phases, Lucas has tapped Chinese architectural firm MAD Architects to lead the design, which, at first glance, looks like it will be a futuristic design surrounded by acres of sprawling green space.

As far as the content of the museum goes, the one-of-a-kind collections will be divided into three categories, namely narrative art, the art of cinema and digital art. The exhibitions will include everything from fine art and popular art to illustrations and comics, and of course, props and storyboards from the director’s iconic movies.

According to Lucas, the museum will revolve not only around the art itself, but the idea of creating something new and unique, no matter what medium, “The whole point of this museum is to stimulate the imagination…to open eyes to the possibilities of creating art.”

Groundbreaking is planned before year’s end, a spokesman said, with the opening targeted for 2021.
