The Broad remakes Los Angeles' art sceneWhen he arrived in Los Angeles more than 50 years ago, Eli Broad once said, he found himself in a city without a cultural center. On Sept. 20 that effort takes a major step forward with the opening of The Broad, a shining, pop-art styled museum holding 2,000 works by arguably every important contemporary artist of the past 60 years.The $140 million project featuring 50,000 square feet of exhibition space is the most recent accomplishment in Broad's ongoing effort to remake a once seedy section of downtown Los Angeles into the cultural arts center he has long envisioned.More than that, says Joanne Heyler, a veteran curator and the new museum's director, The Broad stands to remake Los Angeles into the nation's contemporary art capital.Whatever people come to think, of it, Heyler said, it will be a museum that resembles no other.
