Gary, Indiana, Mayor Rudy Clay and members of the Jackson Family Foundation including Joe Jackson, will hold a Press Conference on Wednesday, June 2, 2010 to announce a major move forward in his quest for the construction of a Jackson museum.
The press conference is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. at the Genesis Convention Center located at One Genesis Center Plaza (5th and Broadway) in downtown Gary.
Mayor Clay, and the Jackson Family Foundation have been working for months on the Jackson museum that has the potential to bring 500,000 to 750,000 visitors to Gary. In addition, it is projected that the museum and arts center will generate hundreds of construction jobs, and thousands of full-time jobs for the community when the project is completed.
On the heels of the death of Michael Jackson last year, the world’s greatest entertainer, thousands of people have continued to travel to Gary, Indiana, from all over the world to see the Jackson house at 2300 Jackson Street.
Mayor Clay has said this development will be one of the world’s most favored destination points.
