Great Stuff: George Lucas Opening Art Museum in San Francisco!


According to CBS news Star Wars creator George Lucas is opening up his own art museum in San Francisco!  He says that he has a collection of thousands of works of art.  Some from great artists like Norman RockwellJC Leyendecker and Maxfeild Parish!!

I'm sure he is also going to have tons of work from Star Wars concept artists like Iain McCaig, Doug Chiang and hopfully a few Drew Struzan original poster art!  Cant wait to visit!

Last year I got a chance to see Geroge Lucas's Norman Rockwell collection in DC along with the Norman Rockwell collection of Steven Spielberg!  It was AMAZING and I'm sure this museum and its rotating collection of fantasy and illustration art will be mind BLOWING!
