LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad announced that the contemporary art museum bearing their names will not charge for admission after it opens in downtown L.A. on Sept. 20.
The museum at 221. S. Grand Avenue will be home to the Broad’s collection of nearly 2,000 works of art, showcasing “one of the world’s leading collections of masterworks of postwar and contemporary art,” a statement said.
“Edye and I are delighted to welcome everyone to this museum, and we are excited to share the contemporary art in our collection with the public,” Eli Broad said. “We are pleased to offer free general admission so that affordability isn’t a criteria to see the art.”
The Broad will be open to the public six days a week. It will be closed to the public on Mondays, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
