Our photography TA waited about 15 minutes into our conversation about my excitement over the opening of LA’s new contemporary art museum, to politely correct the common mispronunciation of this seemingly odd-name choice. The Broad boasts its philantrophic founder, Eli Broad’s(who helped financially support the under-appreciated Hammer Museum), astounding collection of nearly 2,000 works from 200 artists. These are a few overdue photos of some faves, from my LA birthday this past March. I hate that I like Jeff Koons’ “work” lol.
Missing: Pieces from SDSU Alum, John Baldessari and Cindy Sherman’s portraits.
Fail: Getting lost in Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room and crying internally. 90s Exhibit at the Geffen.
