Building Project Update
April 9, 2020

Our building project is continuing on schedule, thanks to the hard work of many over the last several years. Both the County and City of Los Angeles have declared building construction to be an essential activity, and the County has strongly urged us to continue moving forward. All of the enabling activities required in advance of construction were completed before the coronavirus crisis unfolded, allowing us to continue hazmat abatement and internal demolition and proceed with hard demolition as planned. Beginning this week, hard demolition has started and will continue for several months in accordance with all applicable guidelines. We are also making every effort to keep our neighbors informed of the work schedule and are responding to any concerns about the ongoing construction.

  • Both LACMA and our general contractor, Clark Construction, are working diligently to ensure a safe work environment for the crews working on the site. To that end, Clark Construction and its subcontractors have taken all necessary protective measures in accordance with government guidelines.

An Engine for Recovery
April 9, 2020

During difficult times like these, there is an unquantifiable benefit for LACMA to reaffirm our commitment to our mission and our community by moving forward with the building project. We expect our project to be an important source of job creation, with as many as up to 4,000 people working on our construction project through the next four years. Having already reached $650 million in campaign pledges and almost 90% of the total campaign goal completed, LACMA’s board of trustees reaffirmed its commitment to the project two weeks ago, recognizing that our new building is a powerful and visible signal to Los Angeles of renewed vitality and an engine for recovery after this crisis.

Building Project Update
March 5, 2020

Over the last several months, we have been preparing for the start of construction of our Building for the Permanent Collection. As we embark on construction, this is recent progress and work being done on campus:

  • Temporary museum facilities have been installed on the west campus in order to continue operations during construction.
  • Temporary facilities for education and family programs as well as public bathrooms are being finalized north of Ray’s and will open to the public in the next week.
  • Construction fencing and sound barriers are being completed along the construction perimeter to provide for public safety and within the EIR project site plan.
  • Construction staging areas are being prepared inside the construction perimeter.
  • Hazmat abatement and internal demolition are underway in the buildings to be replaced.

Thank you for your support of LACMA in this exciting time of campus transformation and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

LACMA Campus Update

An update on LACMA’s ongoing campus transformation and plans for our new permanent collection building, the David Geffen Galleries.

As you are aware, we are preparing for construction, and as part of that work we will install a construction screen on the existing fence of the Cantor Sculpture Garden and remove the trees planted within.

An update on LACMA’s ongoing campus transformation and plans for our new permanent collection building, the David Geffen Galleries.

As you are aware, we are preparing for construction, and as part of that work we will install a construction screen on the existing fence of the Cantor Sculpture Garden and remove the trees planted within. This garden previously housed the Rodin sculptures that have been removed in advance of construction. The screen fence, which will be installed this week, will provide for public safety and will be within the approved EIR project site plan.

In preparation for construction, the ailing facilities on our east campus have closed to the public. Currently we are beginning site work on LACMA’s campus in advance of construction and in preparation for temporary utility services. This requires the installation of a construction fence and removal of some landscape within the approved project boundaries along the northern edge of LACMA’s Hammer and Ahmanson buildings and including the path that runs in parallel. The fence will provide for public safety and will be within the approved EIR project site plan. We are working in close collaboration with the Natural History Museum to minimize impacts to the park.

In addition, new bike parking stations are being built on LACMA’s campus just northeast of Levitated Mass. The parking lot at Spaulding and Wilshire remains open and operational at this time (a small section is closed temporarily for soil testing).

Our west campus continues to thrive, with exhibitions—including artworks from the permanent collection—in BCAM and the Resnick Pavilion; Urban Light and Levitated Mass; robust education, music, and other public programming; and dining at Ray’s, Stark Bar, and LACMA Café, now located at the Smidt Welcome Plaza. The Boone Children’s Gallery is also continuing its family art-making programs in various locations on the west campus; please check out the new locations and hours on our website.
