SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The stewards of national park land at the base of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge have rejected a museum proposal by “Star Wars” creator George Lucas.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports the Presidio Trust’s seven-member board voted unanimously on Monday against Lucas’ plan and two others that were under consideration for an 8-acre site overlooking San Francisco Bay.

The trust, however, said it would work with Lucas to find another site for his museum within the park.

Lucas wants a showcase for his collection of popular art, including illustrations by Norman Rockwell and Maxfield Parrish.

David Perry, a spokesman for the producer, said the Lucas group was surprised to hear there were other possible sites for the museum in the park and would continue to work with the trust.
