    The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is located in Los Angeles, United States, on Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile district. It is an almost encyclopedic museum: among other sections, it houses Assyrian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman archeology, European painting and one of the largest collections of Latin American art.

    It was founded in 1910 as part of the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art. It had no collection of its own, and in its early days exhibited works on loan. In the 1920s-30s the museum grew rapidly, and by 1945-50 it received major donations from the controversial William Randolph Hearst, the mogul who inspired Orson Welles’ film Citizen Kane. In 2008, the museum dedicated an exhibition to Hearst, bringing together some of the works he donated. More than 2,000 Latin American works were donated by Bernard Lewin and his wife Edith Lewin. Today, the support of the Broad couple, well known in the contemporary art market, has set a new course for the museum.

More than 2,000 Latin American works were donated by Bernard Lewin and his wife Edith Lewin. Today, the support of the Broad couple, well known in the contemporary art market, has marked a new direction for the museum, with the construction of a new building designed for the exhibition of their private collection. This patronage relationship has imposed certain conditions that are questioned by some critics.

    El Museo de Arte del Condado de Los Ángeles (LACMA) es un museo de arte situado en Wilshire Boulevard, en los alrededores de Miracle Mile, en Los Ángeles. El LACMA está en Museum Row, junto a La Brea Tar Pits (Museo George C. Page).

    El LACMA se fundó en 1961, separándose del Museo de Historia, Ciencia y Arte de Los Ángeles. Cuatro años más tarde, se trasladó al complejo de Wilshire Boulevard diseñado por William Pereira. El patrimonio y las colecciones del museo crecieron en los años 80, y añadió varios edificios a partir de esa década y en las siguientes. En 2020, cuatro edificios del campus fueron demolidos para dar paso a una instalación reconstruida diseñada por Peter Zumthor. Su diseño suscitó una fuerte oposición por parte de la comunidad y fue criticado por los críticos de arquitectura y los conservadores del museo, que se opusieron a su reducido espacio en las galerías, a su mal diseño y a sus exorbitantes costes[4][5][6].

    El LACMA es el mayor museo de arte del oeste de Estados Unidos. Atrae a cerca de un millón de visitantes al año, entre foráneos y angelinos. Es muy famoso y es ampliamente conocido en todo el país[7]. Alberga más de 150.000 obras que abarcan la historia del arte desde la antigüedad hasta el presente. Además de las exposiciones de arte, el museo ofrece ciclos de cine y conciertos.
