Los Angeles County Museum of Art

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art was established as a museum in 1961. LACMA is the largest encyclopedic museum west of Chicago and attracts nearly one million visitors annually. The museum was built in a style similar to Lincoln Center and the Los Angeles Music Center and consisted of three buildings: the Ahmanson Building, the Bing Center, and the Lytton Gallery (renamed the Frances and Armand Hammer Building in 1968). In 2004, LACMA's Board of Trustees unanimously approved plans to transform the museum, led by world-renowned architect Renzo Piano.
