Eli Broad, Philanthropic Cautionary Tale

Broad’s style — his power plays, his demands for control and fealty, and his determination to go it alone — meant that controversy and ill-feeling dogged many of his big projects. He fell out with the architects; he crossed swords with directors such as Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s Michael Govan; and his behavior stirred up resentments among fellow cultural philanthropists, many of whom refused to give to projects that had Broad’s name on them. – Washington Post

Govan’s Folly? Stuck in the LACMA Quagmire

In decades of covering museum buildings, I’ve mostly refrained from “reviewing” a building that hasn’t gone up yet. That’s why I’ve hung back from commenting on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s capital project-in-progress. But an unsettling (literally) development led me to weigh in. – Lee Rosenbaum

How to get on the trail of LA’s most significant architectural homes

Russell Brown isn’t an architect or a historian, but the filmmaker, a lifelong Angeleno, is an ardent fan of the city’s architecture. Having grown tired of trying to explain to others that L.A. is an architecturally significant city, he founded Friends of Residential Treasures: Los Angeles, or FORT, two years ago. It took a bit of time to build and develop the non-profit dedicated to the study and preservation of local historic homes, but this past June FORT officially launched online with the f...

‘Southland Tales’ Prequel in the Works from Richard Kelly, Would Utilize Both Live-Action and Animation

In 2006, Donnie Darko director Richard Kelly premiered his second feature film, Southland Tales, at the Cannes Film Festival. The audience did not react warmly to his hugely ambitious movie, and the film was drastically re-cut before hitting theaters in late 2007, when it failed to make much of an impact. But among film fanatics, the movie has been a much-argued-about talking point for more than a decade. Kelly has only directed one other movie since then (2009’s The Box), but he recently revea...

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic having temporarily redrawn the boundaries of our lives, many of us have already begun to rediscover our own creativity. Some have even done it on Zoom, the t...

LACMA’s biggest donor breaks with museum over changes in how it shows Old Master works

LOS ANGELES — In a stunning rebuke to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, a foundation virtually synonymous with the museum for 60 years and its largest donor of European Old Master paintings and sculptures, has ceased making gifts of art to the museum, it was reported Tuesday.
