Broad's Homes Are True Gauge of His Standards

August 26, 2004

Re "The Art of Giving In to a Giver," Aug. 23: In defending her decision to accept Eli Broad's proposed funding of a new and enlarged L.A. County Museum of Art, along with the inclusion of granting him the rights of control over both its architecture and its acquisitions, museum President and Director Andrea Rich states, " ... is there a member on our board who has more experience building ... or has better taste in art and architecture, or has higher standards?"

However, the taste and standards of Broad are best assessed not by listening to Rich's implied claim of excellence, but rather by personally viewing the examples of the kind of taste and standards in architecture that represent the main creative output and cultural impact of Broad's hugely productive career: www.kbhomes.com (Kaufman & Broad Homes).
