Dear Ms. Mellody Hobson & Mr. George Lucas,

I’m excited about your plan to build the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum. This center presents such an amazing opportunity to inspire creativity, especially in our youth. We'd like you to consider opening your museum in a place where its impact can be amplified like no other, Los Angeles.

Mayor Eric Garcetti and the residents of Los Angeles

Here are some reasons my fellow Angelenos and I have for #WhyLucasInLA:

Heart of our city. More than a tourist spot, we’re offering a space in famous Expo Park near dinosaurs and a spaceship #WhyLucasInLA
Education for all our kids. Every student in LA can visit, giving us 640,000+ chances a year to inspire the next great creator #WhyLucasInLA
Everyone in. Building in a diverse community allows all our youth to see arts & entertainment as part of their world #WhyLucasInLA
A global hub. Home to a thriving downtown with awarded food, art, music & culture, LA welcomes 42.2M visitors a year #WhyLucasInLA
Creativity Thrives Here. LA is the creative capital of the world. We nurture and create storytellers #WhyLucasInLA
