The Broad Opening

The Broad, LA’s new contemporary art museum will open its doors on September 20. Founded by philanthropists and longtime collectors Eli and Edythe Broad and designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler, the museum will be home to the nearly 2,000-piece Broad collection and will showcase one of the world’s leading collections of masterworks of postwar and contemporary art on two floors of galleries.


For the first time in its over four decade history, the postwar and contemporary art collection assembled by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad will be shown to the public in its most comprehensive installation when The Broad opens on Sept. 20. The inaugural installation will feature a sweeping, chronological journey through its contemporary art collection that has never before been possible in such depth.
Founding Director Joanne Heyler, who is curating the inaugural installation, has selected more than 250 works—by over 60 artists including Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Barbara Kruger, John Baldessari, Cindy Sherman, Mark Bradford, Jeff Koons and Kara Walker — that best represent the Broad collection’s view of more than a half century of contemporary art.


The Broad will be open to the public six days a week at the following times: Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The Broad will be closed to the public on Mondays, as well as on Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
