Beverly Hills out of the running for Broad Museum

The Beverly Hills City Council confirmed Wednesday that it would not continue to pursue the Broad Museum, which leaves Santa Monica and downtown Los Angeles as the two possible locations for the new museum.

A Beverly Hills City spokeswoman said that the city has “other project priorities” besides buying a site for the museum. In a letter to Eli Broad, Beverly Hill City Manager Jeff Kolin said, “While our City Council is convinced that Beverly Hills offers an attractive location for your renowned art collection, we understand that The Broad Art Foundation is now considering other locations.” Kolin went on to say that should alternate sites not come to fruition, the city remained open to further partnership discussions.

Karen Denne, a spokeswoman for the Broad Art Foundation said, “All three locations had challenges, but we’ve still got two viable options.” Broad expects to make a decision on the museum’s location by end of spring.
