Broad Art Museum receives $5 million donation






The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation announced a $5 million gift to the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum on Friday.

The large endowment honors the museum’s Founding Director Michael Rush.

Eli and Edythe Broad, the founders of the museum, used the gift to express their gratitude toward Rush’s leadership and strides toward furthering the unique quality of the museum, which is a piece of art itself.

The $5 million gift will aid in continuing the explorative displays of art the museum is known for.

The gift bumps the total investment by the Broads in the museum up to $33 million.

The building was designed by Zaha Hadid and opened in November 2012.
