Broad Art Foundation

Copyright Gregory Crewdson

I just found out yesterday via a work friend that the Broad Art Foundation can be visited by appointment by "museum and art professionals, art scholars and other qualified individuals..."

Of course, you can always visit the Broad Contemporary Art Museum at LACMA, but it seems a greater selection of his impressive collection can be viewed if you take the time to call up to arrange a visit.

A visit to the website surprised me as to the depth of his photography collection, which can be viewed online (wait 5 seconds or so for the large images to become sharp). For instance, I didn't realize it was Mr. Broad who had paid the highest price ever for a photograph. It appears some Gursky's are currently on display but I'd call ahead to be sure.
