The Broad

IMG_4299 2Los Angeles has a new contemporary art museum! The Broad Museum opened this past September in downtown LA and is free to all, just so long as you reserve a ticket online in advance. Seems simple enough. However, these tickets are a coveted item at the moment. People have to book months in advance due to the museum’s popularity. The 2,000 work collection includes a wide range of artists such as Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst, Keith Haring and Yayoi Kusama. After months of anticipation I finally had the opportunity to visit the Broad. Here are a few of my favorite works.
