Los Angeles has been adding art museums to the city at a fast pace since I moved here in 1980. The addition of the Broad Contemporary Art Museum or BCAM at LA County Museum of Art, is the latest addition to this list.
I was not impressed with the installation of rows and rows of old style light posts that lead into the entry courtyard, but liked the mural painted old car which is roped off and warrants it's own guard. The buildings red steel and glass entry are easy to access and have a simple elegance. Take the outside escalator to the third floor.
The large galleries on the top two floors are filled with Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jeff Koons, Jasper Johns and many more crazy, sixties artists. It is an assault of color and form.

Hey Sharon, thanks for the tour! Now I want to go, but alas, a trip to the golden state is not in my immediate future. I will put it on my 'one of these days' list!
What an interesting blog! Makes me want to visit...
See you Saturday!
