SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco politicians are rolling out the welcome mat for George Lucas' collection of American art and movie memorabilia in an effort to keep the "Star Wars" creator from moving his proposed museum to Chicago.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Mayor Ed Lee had banners reading "George Lucas, please build your museum in San Francisco for the world to enjoy" hung Friday at both City Hall and the waterfront parcel known as Seawall Lot 330 that the city hopes will be the future home of the Lucas Cultural Arts Museum.

Lee and a gaggle of former mayors that included Willie Brown and Dianne Feinstein also sent Lucas a letter this week assuring him of their support.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has been trying to entice the director to build the museum in his city.
