Getting there: Civic Center/ Grand Park Metro Station is several blocks away -- you can walk!
Pictured is the conceptual drawing of The Broad art museum near Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown Los Angeles and across the street from the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). This world class facility funding comes from the couple pictured, Eli and Edythe Broad, lifelong philanthropists whose foundation assets total $2.6 billion. Eli Broad spent five decades building two Fortune 500 companies from the ground up-- SunAmerica Inc. and KB Home (formerly Kaufman and Broad Home Corporation). During that time he and his wife have amassed a collection among the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide.
The new Broad museum's innovative 'vault-and-veil' concept, a 120,000-square-foot, $140 million building features two floors of gallery space and will be the headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation's worldwide lending library. Best of all-- there is no fee for admission! See thebroad.org
