The Broad is a new museum of modern and contemporary art located in Downtown Los Angeles. The museum opens on September 20, 2015.

The building and its site
The 120,000 square-foot building of the museum has been designed by New York based architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro; it consists of an almost perfect box, enclosed by a light-transmitting perforated envelope, popularly known as “the veil”.
The museum’s site is located next to Walt Disney Concert Hall and close to the MOCA, thus forming with them a remarkable cultural spot in Downtown L.A.

What to see at The Broad?
The museum collection is based on the over 2,000 pieces belonging to the Broad Art Foundation, created by American philanthropists Eli and Edithe Broad, which includes artworks by Braque, Picasso, Giacometti, Miró, Moore Jasper Johns, Baldessarri, Rauschenberg, Warhol, Lichtenstein, Beuys, Basquiat, Haring, Jeff Koons, Richard Serra, Damien Hirst, Christopher Wool, Ellsworth Kelly, Cy Twombly, Yayoi Kusama, Andreas Gursky and Jeff Wall, just to a name a few.

Additional activities and services to the public
The Broad Art Museum includes temporary exhibition spaces, a multimedia space, a shop, educational and lecture rooms, a restaurant, and a public plaza with a garden planted with olive trees.
