In February, I visited what seems to be the most Instagram and Snapchat worthy museum in Los Angeles (besides Chris Burden’s “Urban Lights” at LACMA). Showcasing about 2,000 works of art in their collection, The Broad museum is a new contemporary art museum founded by philanthropists Eli and Edythe Broad. And, the best part is…it’s free!
But, free admission always comes with a price.
The price to pay to visit The Broad in Downtown Los Angeles is a long waiting line on weekdays and even longer line on weekends. I personally didn’t have to wait in line at all because I was able reserve tickets online sometime in November of last year shortly after its grand opening. So there’s two ways to visit The Broad –through their online ticketing system or braving the long lines.The museum was vibrant. The art was vibrant, fun, beautiful, and thought-provoking.
So short or long of a wait, it’s worth your patience!
Also: Biggest sad face because I wasn’t able to visit Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room. An even bigger sad face because the Infinity Room was used in Adele’s music vide, “When We Were Young.” I have until September, however, to try to get in there for a whopping 45 seconds.
Enjoy my pictures and I hope you all get a chance to visit The Broad! xx
