The Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES) has been sharing the wealth of Smithsonian collections and research programs with millions of people outside Washington, D.C. for more than 60 years.

The Lucas Museum of Narrative Art will be a first-of-its kind institution, designed to serve as the country’s premiere venue for understanding the connections and lineage of illustrative and visual art. Conceived by George Lucas, the museum is based in the filmmaker’s passion for education and the role art can play in inspiring young people. The museum will offer state-of-the-art facilities and unparalleled programming forchildren, families, schools, scholars, and visiting artists. The Lucas Museum’s collection includes artists like N.C. Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, and Norman Rockwell, on through the innovative works of Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). The collection ranges from fine art to animation, from fashion to cinematic design and is comprised of works of the great masters of the Golden Age of Illustration through today’s digital artists, showing the ways culture is reflected in the popular art of any given time.
