Los Angeles, Calif. – (October 13, 2022) The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) announced today that construction of the David Geffen Galleries, the museum’s new building for the permanent collection, is now 50 percent complete.

Progress since the start of construction in 2020 has included the installation of 1,500 deep foundation piles and seismic base isolators, construction of foundations and basements and above-grade walls and decks. This fall, temporary falsework will be installed to support construction of the portion of the building that spans Wilshire Boulevard. Completion of construction is projected for late 2024.

The museum is also pleased to announce that the campaign has reached $700 million of its $750 million goal. Los Angeles County’s contribution toward the building was $125 million, with the balance of funding from private philanthropy. As part of this unprecedented public-private partnership, this landmark County-owned building will be 80% paid for by private donations.
