I was asked to forward this email to CGW and Costume College members, and I'd like to add my personal endorsement to this project. I'm not only excited for the potential to see beautiful costumes, but also for all the other amazing artwork that George Lucas has collected. The walls of Skywalker Ranch and the corridors of LucasFilm are absolutely stuffed with wonderful pieces. (Mucha! Rockwell! NC Wyeth!) How exciting would it be to be able to visit this collection at will?
I really hope you'll take a moment to help out with a comment.
As the costume archivist for the
Lucas Cultural Arts Museum, I am contacting you to rally your
costumers around George Lucas and his proposed museum in the bay area!
We need your help in getting this major art institution into the
Presidio site in San Francisco. We need support of
all our costuming fans to make this a reality! The Lucas Cultural Arts Museum
not only will house George’s extensive art collection, but will also
have a permanent cinematic arts gallery which will include original art,
models and costumes (on a permanent
basis) from Star Wars to Indiana Jones! Can you imagine visiting and
seeing costumes in an exhibition every time you go?
don’t need to write a paragraph (unless you’d like), something as small
as a sentence will do a world of good. In doing so, you are insuring a
future for the museum and the artifacts
you love to educate future generations.
hope you can help with the cause! I am a fashion designer myself and
hope your participation leads to a new future for the archive and a
wonderful new museum for you, your family, friends
and fellow Costume College Members.
Thanks so much for your time.
P.S. Thank you in advance for helping us out.
