Open House Tuesday, July 11, 11am-2pm
While LACMA grapples to bring forth Peter Zumthor’s vision for LA’s new museum; John Baldessari’s private gallery/museum is restored, and ready now to discretely house an important art collection. Of course, there could be numerous other uses for this one-of-a-kind building, such as a live-work space, and what serious art collector doesn’t need additional safe and secure display space? Here for the price of one moderately priced major painting is a world class structure to house dozens. The nearly 5,300 square feet of space sheathed in galvanized steel panels presents a secure facade, while careful fenestration fills interiors with indirect light. Includes: Reception Entry, Kitchen, Galleries, 3 baths, and Garages with space for three cars. Several gallery spaces may be converted to bedrooms with a simple addition of closets.
