George Takei gives personal collection to Los Angeles museum

The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Actor and activist George Takei is donating a trove of art and artifacts from his life and career to the Japanese American National Museum in Los Angeles.

The museum announced the gift Wednesday and said the collection will be featured in an exhibition next year. "New Frontiers: The Many Worlds of George Takei" is set to open March 12, 2017.

Takei's collection includes photos, sculptures, scripts and other memorabilia from his "Star Trek" days, as well as his run for Los Angeles City Council in 1973 and the Olympic torch he carried ahead of the 1984 games in Los Angeles.

Takei's most recent acting credit was in the animated "Kubo and the Two Strings." The 79-year-old entertainer is an activist for gay rights and spokesman for the Human Rights Campaign.
