Eli Broad, LA philanthropist and art collector, is continuing to move forward with plans for a museum to house his art collection. The museum will likely be located next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall. The designs from a competition involving six architecture firms was presented to a jury last week, and Mr. Broad may make a decision on the design as early as this week. The museum will house Mr. Broad's collection of contemporary and postwar art, including works by Jeff Koons, Cindy Sherman, Joseph Beuys and Any Warhol. Both the NY Times and the LA Times have reports on the museum.
