Eli & Edythe Broad
FOUNDERS, THE BROAD
With two Fortune 500 companies to their name, the Broads, who have been married for nearly 60 years, have been patrons of the arts since the 1960s, and established The Broad Art Foundation in the ’80s. Having put more than $800 million into Los Angeles art institutions, the Broads are now founding one of their own: The Broad, a contemporary art museum in downtown Los Angeles, designed by Diller, Scofidio + Renfro. The museum is set to open this September.
