Lucas Museum Design Contest Is Now Open!

The Lucas Museum Design Contest is officially open to receiving your design concepts for The Lucas Cultural Museum. As many of you may know, the City of Chicago is vying for the privilege of being the official home of The Lucas Cultural Museum, and the mayor’s task force has finally announced the location – please check the contest page for more details (https://www.viatechnik.com/george-lucas-museum-contest/). VIATechnik would like to encourage this move of George Lucas’ movie memorabilia and art collection to the City of Chicago, celebrating the rich heritage of architecture and its prominence as a first-class city. The contest is not official, nor is it endorsed by Lucasfilms, George Lucas or the City of Chicago, though winning entries will be showcased for the City of Chicago task force.
