The Broad

The Broad is a contemporary art museum under construction on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles dedicated to the collections of Eli and Edythe Broad. Designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the museum will open in 2015 and will offer free general admission to all. The Broad will be home to the nearly 2,000 works of art in the Broad collections, which are among the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. In anticipation of its opening, The Broad has launched “The Un-Private Collection,” a talk series featuring unexpected pairings of cultural leaders and influential artists in the Broad collections, taking place at venues around Los Angeles.
