The Broad Museum is widely recognized as one of the most important collections of postwar and contemporary art in the world, comprised of 2,000 works by some 200 artists and still growing, the Broad collection has been built over five decades by Los Angeles-based philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad.

Assembled with the intention of making important contemporary art accessible to the broadest public, the collection has served for many years as a “lending library” through The Broad Art Foundation (established in 1984), which has loaned works throughout the United States and internationally to more than 500 museums, non-commercial art galleries and exhibition spaces.

With the September 2015 opening of the new contemporary art museum on Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles, The Broad is now home to the works in the Broad collection. Nearly all of the artwork is consolidated on-site, either on view in 50,000 square feet of gallery space or in the second-floor “vault,” a state- of-the-art storage for the works, where they are easily accessible to curators interested in borrowing from the collection.
