LOS ANGELES | The Broad is a contemporary art museum in Downtown Los Angeles that opened in September 2015. Financed by philanthropist Eli Broad, the museum houses Broad’s art collection.

The collection feeatures over 2,000 pieces of contemporary art by over 200 artists, and includes works from artists like Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Ed Ruscha, Andy Warhol, and Roy Liechtenstein. 250 of these pieces will be displayed at any given time, although the stairs leading downstairs and out of the main exhibition part of the building allow visitors to see much of the other art in storage.

Along with the art, the Broad is worth visiting for the architecture of the building. Designed by New York architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the Broad contrasts with the bright metallic perforated exterior of the adjacent Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Concert Hall while respecting its architectural presence by having a porous, “honeycomblike” exterior.

Entry is free, but be aware that the Broad is very popular. Arrive early in the day to minimise queuing.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
