The LACMA in Los Angeles has recently undergone a big renovation so my timing in visiting it was pretty perfect. However in what seems to be an amazing addition is the Broad Contemporary Museum of Art. Broad, (named after the benefactors Eli and Edythe Broad - not as in general art) is an astounding collection of what is basically the best and comprehensive contemporary & pop-art collection I have seen.

Including works by Damian Hirst, Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, Ellsworth Kelly, Cindy Sherman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, John Baldessari, Jeff Koons, Chris Burden, Mike Kelley, and Richard Serra.This private collection which has been donated is not only a whos who of names but some of their most astounding and important works. This collection is basically gasp after gasp for those of us to don't live next to the MOMA or a similar institution.

Clearly it is Eli Broad's intention to make this rival and it does the likes of New York or London in terms of the collection and breadth of works. The security obviously was very tight, so I couldn't take photos however check out the online collection at the LACMA website.
