Decision is near on Lucas museum

SAN FRANCISCO

George Lucas is no stranger to epic struggles on the big screen, but he didn’t expect one off-camera when it came to his art collection.

For nearly a decade, the filmmaker has tried to build a museum to house an extensive personal collection that includes 40,000 paintings, illustrations and film-related items. But legal entanglements and other complications have thwarted his efforts.

After several false starts, Lucas and his art team say they will decide later this month whether to put the museum in San Francisco or Los Angeles, a strategy that has stirred a California rivalry.

The prize is big, and both cities want it badly.

“This is the largest civic gift in American history,” said LA Mayor Eric Garcetti.

The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, as it will be called, promises hundreds of jobs and a high-profile attraction – and it’s essentially free.

The “Star Wars” creator is financing the project himself. He plans to spend more than $1 billion to build the museum, endow it and provide a trove of initial artworks valued at over $400 million.

Transgender opera regional premiere

PITTSBURGH

Pittsburgh Opera continues its 78th season with the Pennsylvania premiere of “As One,” a chamber opera for two voices and string quartet, Feb. 18-26, at the troupe’s headquarters at 2425 Liberty Ave.

“As One” tells the story of the transgender protagonist, Hannah, as she tries to reconcile the discord between herself and the outside world. With humor and empathy, As One traces Hannah’s experiences from her youth in a small town to her college years on the West Coast, and finally to Norway where she is surprised at what she learns about herself.

Most tickets are $40. For performance times and tickets, go to pittsburghopera.org.
