Eli and Edye Broad have been building their collection of postwar and contemporary art over the last five decades. With a belief that the greatest art collections are built when the art is being made, the Broads took to collecting art of their own time.
The Broad is home to more than 2,000 works in the Broad collection, one of the most prominent holdings of postwar and contemporary art worldwide. With in-depth representations of influential contemporary artists like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Barbara Kruger, Cy Twombly, Ed Ruscha, Kara Walker, Christopher Wool, Jeff Koons, Joseph Beuys, Jasper Johns, Cindy Sherman, Robert Rauschenberg, and more, plus an ever-growing representation of younger artists, The Broad enriches, provokes, inspires and fosters appreciation of art of our time.
