Try as I might, I couldn't find an existing thread about the 1965 LACMA campus.

Looks like some changes might be on the horizon.

I thought that LACMA abandoned such plans a few years back, but is Eli Broad going to fund? If so, will it become the Broad LACMA?

As Govan says in interview at the end
"But I’m not sure LACMA was ready for Rem’s huge project at that time. I’ve proposed to the board a more incremental, longer-term plan. If I were to have my way, I’d like to see the whole campus transformed, edge to edge, over about fifteen years."

No reference to funding.

As regards Broad, word is he is looking for a separate site for the Broad Art Foundation museum. However, he is still involved in helping other institutions, such as his recent contribution to bail out MOCA.

More on the Govan/Zumthor "plans." The link verbiage says it all.
