Mayor Rahm Emanuel appointed 12 people Thursday to a new city task force that will recommend a potential site in Chicago for filmmaker George Lucas’ collection of art and movie memorabilia.

The site selected by Emanuel will then compete against at least one known site in San Francisco, where the Star Wars creator spent most of his life, as well as sites proposed by other cities interested in landing his Lucas Cultural Arts Museum.

        If you absolutely have to have one more museum in Chicago… and you have to make a choice…..Go with Lucas' Star Wars venue and forget the Obama Presidential Library which is already earmarked for One Hundred Million dollars.

        I'm guessing more tourist and locals would rather see C3PO and R2D2. AND maybe the city can pick up some of the Comic-con monies.
