Broaden your aesthetic horizons at the contemporary art museum, located in downtown Los Angeles. Overwhelmingly celebrated since opening its doors in 2015, The Broad museum became an instant architectural icon and haven for art lovers. Natural light streams into the unique, white honeycomb “veil” that wraps the three-story building, which features two floors of gallery space and serves as headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation’s worldwide lending library.
Founded by billionaire philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad, the striking museum was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler. The Broad collection includes 2,000 works of art, and is among the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. Work appears by masters including Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Keith Haring, Ci Sherman, Chris Burden and Takashi Murakami.
The Broad is located at 221 S. Grand Avenue, across the street from Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Colburn School. The museum is open six days a week, Tuesday through Sunday. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday; 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
