I’ve been meaning to hit up the new addition to LACMA, The Broad Contemporary Art Museum.. I’ve been hearing some pretty amazing things about it.. Our buddy Rickey said he went and rattled off a few names that were on view..

The Broad collection is a collection of heavy hitters.. Sad to say, the catalog/roster is so deep that if your not in the Broad Collection your not important as an artist to be taken seriously (as a modern artist ofcouse)…  The B.-C.A.M. is ummm simply amazing.  It’s a walk through a modern art history book.

On show now…

Little excerpt on the Broad Family..

The Broad Art Foundation is a lending resource of contemporary art drawn from the collections of two of the foremost philanthropists of our day, Eli and Edythe Broad. With a strong desire to advance public appreciation for contemporary art, the Broads established The Broad Art Foundation in 1984 as a way to keep these works in the public domain through an enterprising loan program that makes the art available for exhibition at accredited institutions throughout the world. The result is a lending library of contemporary art and an expansive collection that is regularly cited as one of the top in the world.
