The Broad, the new concrete, steel, and glass art museum under construction in downtown Los Angeles, is nestled between the Walt Disney Concert Hall and MOCA. Slated to open on September 20, the museum will allow the public access to the unfinished museum with two temporary art installations in the expansive top floor gallery on Sunday, Feb. 15.
The building, designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro, with Gensler as executive architect, is clad in a punctured concrete exoskeleton, a contemporary nod to the city's midcentury architecture.
The Broad, with its nearly complete exterior, on February 5, 2015. The museum's opening collection will include works by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Cy Twombly, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cindy Sherman, Keith Haring, Barbara Kruger, and Jeff Koons. The February 15 preview will include temporary sound and light installations by BJ Nilsen and Yann Novak.
