STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti and Councilmember Price on L.A. as potential location for Lucas Museum of Narrative Art

"The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art would be perfect for Los Angeles. Tens of millions of people visit our city every year — and L.A. has unquestioned stature as a world arts capital, thanks to institutions like the Broad, the Getty, MOCA, and LACMA. We would welcome the opportunity to be a permanent home for this incredible collection, which would become part of a museum culture that is unrivaled in the United States." — Mayor Eric Garcetti

"A museum of this caliber is worthy of a world-class home and that is just what Los Angeles offers. The Lucas Museum would enhance an already thriving museum campus at Expo Park, and enrich the lives of Angelenos of all ages. The NEW 9th welcomes the Lucas Museum and this investment in South LA with open arms." — Councilmember Curren Price
