Re Alisa Tager's May 3 review ("Emerging Master of Metamorphosis") of Tom Friedman's conversion of everyday objects into "elegant works that artfully challenge perception": Hogwash!

Eli Broad is not known for being effusive, not even when talking about one of his greatest passions: collecting contemporary art. The billionaire philanthropist generally seems more comfortable talking about museum buildings than about the artworks that go inside them. But earlier this month, Broad opened his Brentwood hilltop home to this writer ? and opened up a bit about his personal journey as an art collector, which is expected to culminate in early 2013 with the completion of his new museum downtown.
