LACMA Update: Train 'A Coming

Via Councilmember Tom LaBonge's newsletter, we discover the LACMA expansion is "on time and on budget...scheduled February 8, 2008 gala opening ....the 65,000-square foot marble-faced building will be the centerpiece of an expanded and re-envisioned art complex...While Phase I is being completed, fundraising is already underway for Phase II that will include new exhibition space to be built above the garage and a gutted and retrofitted May Co. building that will eventually house administrative offices, gift shop and restaurant. One of the more eye-popping features of the new entry will be a suspended full size rail car by artist Jeff Koons."
