L.A. Art Museum Seeks Boost From Show Business

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has courted movie stars and media executives to inject new energy into its board and boost support for new projects, reports The Los Angeles Times

According to the Times, museum supporters started strategically seeking young Hollywood players about 10 years ago. More than a third of the museum’s 53 trustees are in the media industry, including TV host and producer Ryan Seacrest and executive Casey Wasserman. The museum’s campus will be home to the new Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, slated to open in 2018.
