LA is just a quick hop from the Bay. I was missing seeing friends faces and also heard about this little thing called The Broad...had to check that out too.
What I've learned is that The Broad is basically what is is like to buy art when you are a billionaire. I'd totally take that job!
Here's a few of my museum shots of the exterior and photos of works by Koontz, El Anatsui, Basquiat, Lichtenstein, Warhol, and Kelley.
So many greats! It was like going to Disneyland for art collection with all the names you've seen/read/learned about but then you actually see the works in person. Pop art dreamcicle!
The architecture is by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler. Pretty spectacular in my opinion. The light is beautiful and the hive/veil is really stunning.
I was amazed to find out there are more than 2000 works in the gallery (some in the vault) that will be rotated and that the museum will be free. Um, thank you Eli + Edythe!
