One of the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide
The Broad makes its collection of contemporary art from the 1950s to the present accessible to the widest possible audience by presenting exhibitions and operating a lending program to art museums and galleries worldwide.
By actively building a dynamic collection that features in-depth representations of influential contemporary artists and by advancing education and engagement through exhibitions and diverse public programming, the museum enriches, provokes, inspires, and fosters appreciation of art of our time.
The Broad was founded by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler, the museum offers free general admission and presents an active program of rotating temporary exhibitions and innovative audience engagement. The Broad is home to 2,000 works of art in the Broad collection, one of the world's most prominent collections of postwar and contemporary art.
The 120,000-square-foot building features two floors of gallery space and is the headquarters of The Broad Art Foundation’s worldwide lending library, which has been loaning collection works to museums around the world since 1984. The Broad welcomes more than 800,000 visitors from around the world per year.
Eli and Edythe Broad have been building their collection of postwar and contemporary art over the last five decades. With a belief that the greatest art collections are built when the art is being made, the Broads took to collecting art of their own time.
The Broad is home to 2,000 works in the Broad collection by more than 200 artists, and is one of the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. The collection features in-depth holdings of influential contemporary artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Mark Bradford, Jasper Johns, Jeff Koons, Barbara Kruger, Yayoi Kusama, Kerry James Marshall, Julie Mehretu, Robert Rauschenberg, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Cy Twombly, Kara Walker, Andy Warhol, and more, plus an ever-growing representation of younger artists.
