Angelenos are preparing for a new neighbor. Darth Vader is coming to town, bringing some high art with him.

Los Angeles has been selected as the future site of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art, which will include works of visual storytelling ranging from Norman Rockwell paintings to film ephemera, like the original Darth Vader mask.

The city will benefit in a number of different ways from the $1 billion museum project, which Star Wars creator George Lucas and his wife are funding.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re here for you.
