New plan is released for Lucas Museum

The group behind the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art has unveiled a new, more scaled-down design that it hopes will appeal to city officials who have to sign off on the plan. The proposed museum would house everything from Norman Rockwell paintings to Stars Wars memorabilia to digital art, all from the personal collection of director George Lucas. And it would become part of Chicago’s museum campus on the lakefront. The initial design released last year received a lot of backlash, so how does this fresh take compare? We’re joined by Blair Kamin, Chicago Tribune architecture critic, for his take. (AP/File)
