With 100,000 objects dating from ancient times to the present, this seven-building complex on twenty acres in the heart of Los Angeles is the largest art museum in the Western United States, and certainly among the most important. The Modern art collection, housed in the Ahmanson Building, is superb, featuring works by Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Wassily Kandinsky, Alberto Giacometti, Constantin Brâncuşi, Henry Moore, Willem de Kooning, Joan Miró, Louise Nevelson, Archipenko and Arp. The contemporary collection, displayed in the Broad Contemporary Art Museum, boasts a great assortment of postwar art, including works by Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, John Chamberlain, Matthew Barney and Jeff Koons, among others. LACMA is also the home of Back Seat Dodge '38, Edward Kienholz’s 1964 sculpture depicting a couple in the back seat of a 1938 Dodge automobile. The campus is currently undergoing a ten-year expansion and renovation designed by the Renzo Piano Building Workshop.
