Mr. Brittingham says 'I admire, respect and agree with the values and criteria set forth by the executors of the MJ Estate for ANY proposed formation of the Michael Jackson™ Museum. I am determined to aggregate the funding, right property, and the required permissions from the executors of The Michael Jackson Estate™, the government of Qatar, and the California courts, in order to house The Michael Jackson Collection and Memorabilia™. Further, I am convinced that the proposed 'Michael Jackson Museum project' proposed for Gary, Indiana that is being bandied about by Joe Jackson and his cronies - is doomed to failure, and shall never get the required permissions from John Branca and McCain - the executors of the MJ Estate.'
'The Estate of Michael Jackson was never consulted about, nor is it involved in, the Jackson Family museum being proposed in Gary, Indiana," attorney Howard Weitzman, representing the Michael Jackson estate, has said in a recent statement. "The Estate has no connection to this project."
The 'Michael Jackson Museum Project' is a 'real work in progress', according to Brittingham, 'and requires very careful, transparent deliberation, in gathering together the right place, people, resources, permissions, and ALL of the other vital components necessary to answer the question; 'How to create a concrete, viable solution of what to do with the collections and memorabilia of Michael Jackson?' Brittingham further states; 'I have been working this since Michael died - There is an answer to this question... and this is it!'
Brittingham further states that 'because this proposed, non-profit museum foundation shall be a non-commercial activity, and does not solicit nor accept donations or contributions of any kind, I am using the personal commerce vehicle of selling my new epic poem 'Michael, Michael, where are you – Now that you're gone, what are we to do?' worldwide, in order to maximize my personal effectiveness, and see to it that this noble project gets done, and gets done with the right people - in the right way - concretely and transparently.'
Brittingham's remarkable vision includes 'enlisting the architectural, design and building expertise of the world's best people; to duplicate the 'Dome of The Rock' building and grounds, an Islamic shrine which has for centuries stood as a landmark in Jerusalem, Israel. In this way, the 'New Dome of the Rock' shall provide a visual reminder and tangible symbol of not only the underlying unity among the Abrahamic Religions, but also their discord and rivalry. Michael would have liked this idea and to see this located in the heart of the Gulf States.' The project has already garnered a worldwide base of 1000's of supporters.
About the Collection of Michael Jackson™ The auction of an array of treasures from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch™, ranging from Michael Jackson's iconic white-jeweled glove to the grandiose entry gates to Neverland Ranch™ was canceled, just days before it was to take place, with auctioneers agreeing to return all the items to the singer. The complete collection, now housed in warehouses in Beverly Hills, offers an astounding array of fine and decorative art items, furniture, paintings and life size bronze and marble sculptures to amusements, arcade games and Disneyana, entertainment memorabilia and garden statuary from the life and career of the King of Pop™.
An enthusiastic Brittingham sums it all up by stating that; 'Michael Jackson™ was an enthusiastic and avid collector of everything from exquisite antiques to prized entertainment and popular culture memorabilia. The proposed Michael Jackson Museum Foundation© shall be proud to present all these items for viewing to the public, in this historic opportunity to conserve, protect and house the collections of Michael Jackson™, and the former contents of his Neverland Ranch™, in a state-of-the art museum, located in an equally historic and fitting property in the State of Qatar.'
