The Broad Museum in Los Angeles
The Broad is a new contemporary art museum built by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles. General admission for The Broad is free most days, and there is a charge for some exhibitions – such as the previous Cindy Sherman Exhibition, which was $12.
A special exhibit of considerable note is Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room, on display until Oct. 2017. A room is completely covered with mirrors and dozens of LED lights hang from the ceiling. As the multitude of lights reflect, they accumulate and expand exponentially. The museum is home to the nearly 2,000 works of art in the Broad collection, which is among the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide.
The Broad’s first hosted special exhibition, Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors–the first institutional survey to explore the celebrated Japanese artist’s immersive Infinity Mirror Rooms–will embark on the most significant North American tour of her work in nearly two decades, and The Broad will be the only California museum to host the exhibition when it comes to Los Angeles in 2017.
