Looks like Lucas' Narrative Art Museum finally found a home.

Granted, the museum did finally find a home in Los Angeles, but this Bloomberg Businessweek article by Devin Leonard details its long, sad history.

Lucas has offered to build his museum in a major American city for free. Including construction costs, an endowment, and the value of the artwork, his organization says the total value of his gift is $1.5 billion. “It’s an epic act of generosity and altruism,” says Don Bacigalupi, the museum effort’s president. “George Lucas, as with any person of great resources and great success, could choose to do whatever he wants to do with his resources, and he has chosen to give an extraordinary gift to the people of a city and the world.”
