The Broad Museum LA EarthCam TimeLapse Celebrates Contemporary Art Center Opening

The Arts


I could not be more elated to be inviting you to bring your entire family and kids to visit my hometown of Los Angeles in the heart of Southern California. After three years of construction and $140 million invested The Broad Museum is set to open to the public this Sunday, September 20th in Downtown L.A. As you can see by the still image from The Broad's Facebook page and the EarthCam video below this is one really beautiful and unique new arty destination that will be on lots of people's itinerary, both the locals and tourists.

This 120,000 square-foot contemporary art museum is expected to make a huge impact on the city's art scene in the months and years to come. And guess what? Wherever you are located you can witness an amazing EarthCam time-lapse right now capturing the past three years of building this new art institution in just two minutes. 

Get in on the excitement now. I bet you'll want to watch this video more than once, and if you have kids, they will want to join you to see how the building rises magically from an empty hole in the ground to a majestic world class architectural wonder.

About The Broad Museum
The Broad, Los Angeles' newest contemporary art museum, opening September 20, 2015 with free general admission, was built by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. The museum structure -- a work of art in itself -- was designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler. The new museum complex houses 2,000 works of art from the Broad collection, considered to be among the most important collections of postwar and contemporary art in the world. Featuring its innovative “veil-and-vault” concept, the building offers two floors of gallery space to showcase The Broad’s comprehensive collection in addition to being home to The Broad Art Foundation’s worldwide lending library.
