Living in Los Angeles, we have access to all kinds of social, cultural, and artistic attractions. But when there is a brand-new one opening, we all get excited. Construction on The Broad Museum has been ongoing for several years on Grand Avenue, right next door to the Walt Disney Concert Hall, and across the street from the Museum Of Contemporary Art (MOCA). So, when the museum was finally opened, we got right over there.
The basics are these: The Museum is approximately 120,000 square feet in size, and was designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro. The Museum is named for Philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, who shelled out the $140 million for the project. The collection contains over 2000 works of contemporary art by over 200 artists including Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jasper Jones, Keith Haring, and Takashi Murakami, among others.
So take a look and enjoy, and get yourself to the Broad as soon as possible - it is a dramatic, inspiring, and well-layed-out space for viewing great art in Los Angeles.
