Save LACMA is looking to the citizens of Los Angeles and others who care about LACMA to aid in raising funds to place a measure onto the Los Angeles County ballot regarding the plans to build a new museum building on the LACMA campus and tear down some of the existing structures.
In a statement, the nonprofit said it has retained the services of Bradley Hertz and the Sutton Law Firm to help guide them through their efforts to ensure that LACMA – a public institution on public land with a priceless collection of publicly-owned artwork – will remain accountable to the community. Hertz and Sutton represent nonprofits, like Save LACMA, that are involved in the political and legislative processes on the local and state levels.
“After several conversations with Bradley Hertz and after learning about how ballot measures can empower the public to make their public institutions to be more accountable, we feel very optimistic that we can help save our Los Angeles County Museum of Art from what would likely be a massive budget shortfall and an unfinished product that would not provide our extraordinary collection of world class art the space it deserves,” said Rob Hollman, Save LACMA board president. “We are hearing from the majority of the public, who wants to know they can help Save LACMA. The answer is simple: help us get this measure onto the next county ballot by engaging with your colleagues, friends and family, insist that your local county supervisor hear what constituents actually want for our museum – and don’t forget to vote!”
All contributions to Save LACMA are tax-deductible.
