Bears at BCAM

November 6, 2009
After their LACMA tour, Teddy and Nibs stopped by the Broad Contemporary Art Museum (BCAM) next door. The museum cost $56 million to build and was paid for by flashy Detroit native but now L.A. resident Eli Broad who is worth $5 billion. Eli made his money in real estate then made even more with SunAmerica. Because Eli funded this museum he had say over how it looked and personally hired Italian architect Renzo Piano to construct this red-and-beige boxlike structure. Do you like it? Nibs is not sure if he does...


  1. Inside BCAM are contemporary works by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and Jeff Koons, etc...

  2. i haven't been inside yet but the outside looks nice. i like the beige stone... it reminds me of the Getty

  3. $56 million!? that is crazy
    why couldn't he have built a homeless shelter?
    or a park?
    enough with modern art already
