George Lucas Is Opening An Illustration, Animation And Comic Museum

George Lucas is hinting at his next project: a museum dedicated to arts such as illustration, comics, film design and animation (all the things that we worshiped through the '30s to present day, just in case you weren't aware).  Lucas says, and I quote: "this museum, if anything, is a dedication to cultural fantasy".  According to an interview with CBS, he initially plans

to rotate his personal art collection which numbers thousands of pieces, and includes works by Maxfield Parrish, N. C. Wyeth, and Norman Rockwell.

 This is a part of the interview that's is the most exciting (part of which I have already quoted):

 “This museum, if anything, is a dedication to cultural fantasy. How do you design enviornments? How do you design sets? How do you design characters? How do you design costumes? Part of the museum is designed to educate younger people into the idea of storytelling, into the idea of being able to paint your fantasies, which is what Star Wars was. Star Wars was there to inspire young people to imagine things, to imagine going anywhere in the universe and doing anything you want to do and using your imagination to entertain yourself.”
