Art Market Blog – Interview with Eli Broad and Nicholas Forrest

broad_museum.jpgAs some of you already know I was asked to give my opinion on the Eli Broad decision to lend his art collection to museums and cultural institutions as opposed to donating the collection. I have included below a link to the story and the interview.

Los Angeles’ new Broad Contemporary Art Museum, funded by real-estate baron Eli Broad, will house his immense collection. But he’s only lending his art. Andrea Gardner reports on how this unusual arrangement might set a trend.
