The museum going to be focused on narrative art is considered to be the most artistic one. It was described to be a new jewel to the city by the mayor of Los Angeles. The organizers have envisioned a beautiful and artistic ideology to the museum. Choosing the venue amongst San Francisco and Los Angeles was quite a difficult one for the designers for both places had several unique attributes.
The location was carefully selected to provide a greater impact to the large community. The museum is now going to be set amidst the California African-American Museum, California Science Center and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County. The site of the museum is also closer to the University of Southern California and the metro rail portals. There is going to be a great Star Wars display along with the other forms of renowned art. The collection in the museum lays emphasis on the digital and cinema art along with the photography dated back to the 20th century. Lucas’s new movie storyboards will be an integral part too.
The museum is expected to span around 275,000 square feet area that is somewhere around 7 acres of land with a vibrant green environment. The gallery space would be more than 9,300 square meters. The museum will thus gain a prominent position among other leading art galleries across the globe. The curvaceous structure and the parabolic pillars add to the unique designing venture. Ma Yansong from MAD Architects, a Beijing-based architectural enterprise is said to be the mastermind behind the design. The museum is thus intended to stand testimony to the art, legacy, and history of Los Angeles. The grand opening is however scheduled during the year 2020.
