Remembering Eli Broad 1933 – 2021

There are not many philanthropists like Eli Broad, who died on April 30th, 2021 at the age 87. In his lifetime, Broad and his wife Edith amassed a personal collection of over 2,000 works of contemporary art, which they then donated to the city of Los Angeles (and the world), building a namesake museum to house them all for your enjoyment. Who does that? Amazing. You can read more about Eli Broad’s life of service in his obituary from the NY Times at This Link. Read all about my super fun visit to The Broad Museum shortly after it opened in 2015, and see some choice pieces of the collection, at This Link. RIP.

Happy Birthday, Peter Max!

Legendary Pop artist and philanthropist Peter Max was born on this day, October 19th in 1937. I bought my first original Peter Max painting this past summer while I was on my awesome Carnival Cruise through the western Caribbean. It now hangs on the wall in The Chickpad, making my home look even cooler than it did before! Happy Birthday, Peter!
