On Thursday, the first architectural renderings for the Diller Scofidio + Renfro designed Broad Art Foundation’s contemporary art museum will be released at a press conference inside Walt Disney Concert Hall, reports Blogdowntown.

The museum will be located on Grand Avenue across from MOCA and directly south of WDCH. A planning/construction timetable will also be announced Thursday, and attendees will have an opportunity to meet the museum’s governing board.

The Broad Art Foundation will use the museum as a "world headquarters" for managing its extensive art collections, and 35,000 square feet of exhibition space is expected to be set aside to "display approximately 300 of the collection’s 2,000 works at any one time," notes Blogdowntown.

Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, City Councilwoman Jan Perry, Community Redevelopment Agency Chairman Kenneth H. Fearn and approximately 200 community leaders will join The Broads and architect Liz Diller at the announcement. The philanthropist expressed hope over the summer that the museum would also help to provide momentum for the $3 billion Grand Avenue Project.
