There are now three finalists for creating a cultural institution on one of the most beautiful stretches of parkland in the country, at mid-Crissy Field in the Presidio. Which do you favor? A museum devoted to "Star Wars" creator George Lucas' art collection? An institute focused on sustainability and exploring the social, environmental and economic issues of our time? Or a cultural center with constantly changing programming including the history of the Presidio? We talk with a representative from each proposal pitching their plan.
