Founded by philanthropist and filmmaker George Lucas and his wife, Mellody Hobson, co-CEO and president of Ariel Investments, the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will inspire current and future generations through the universal art of visual storytelling. The museum, scheduled to open in 2023, will present exhibitions for diverse public audiences that will bring together mass-produced images with academically rooted art forms to unpack visual storytelling in its richness and complexity. Dynamic learning opportunities and public programs will enable people of all ages to explore diverse forms of narrative art. Designed by renowned architect Ma Yansong and under construction in Los Angeles’s Exposition Park, the museum will feature expansive galleries, state-of-the-art cinematic theaters, numerous dedicated spaces for learning and engagement, new public green space, restaurants, retail, and an event space.
