At the end of September, the much-anticipated contemporary museum The Broad opened its doors in Los Angeles. Funded by Edythe and Eli Broad, the Los Angeles-based philanthropists who have dedicated billions to the arts and education reform, selected 250 of their favorite art works (they have a collection of more than 2,000) for the inaugural exhibition. Architectural Digest takes us through their Frank Gehry-designed home for a tour that is beyond jaw-dropping. You can’t count the number of Cy Twombly, Jasper Johns, and Andy Warhol works on the walls. And the Broads’ taste for progressive architecture, bold artwork, and traditional furniture by Rose Tarlow make this home truly extraordinary. Scroll through for the tour.
