George Lucas' museum plans suffer setback

Director George Lucas' plans to build his own art museum at the base of the San Francisco, California's Golden Gate Bridge have been rejected by local park officials.

The seven board members of the Presidio Trust, which looks after the national park land, unanimously vetoed the Star Wars creator's proposal on Monday (03Feb14), but agreed to continue working with Lucas to find another, more suitable area for construction.

The filmmaker plans to put his extensive art collection on display at the museum so others can also appreciate works by the likes of Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish.
