Wilshire-Fairfax : Museum Receives Grant

December 26, 1985

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has received a $500,000 grant from Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A. Inc. for the new Pavilion for Japanese Art, museum director Earl A. Powell III announced.

This is the largest corporate grant the museum has received for the pavilion, which will house the world-renowned Shin'enkan Collection of Edo-period Japanese paintings and art, Powell said.

The 32,100-square-foot pavilion is scheduled to open in 1987.

The collection, which according to museum officials rivals the Emperor of Japan's collection of paintings from the Edo period (1615-1868), will be seen for the first time in the United States in a special preview exhibition from Feb. 23 through May 18 at the museum, 5905 Wilshire Blvd.
