Fifty works from numerous private collections are due to go on show at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (Lacma) next year, to mark the institution’s 50th birthday. The works, which are gifts promised by high-profile, Los Angeles-based collectors, are due to be unveiled at a benefit party on 18 April.

“The nice thing is that, after the 50th anniversary exhibition, the art goes back to the donors. They can live with it as long as they want—until the second they die—and then it will be left to Lacma,” the collector Jane Nathanson told the magazine "Los Angeles Confidential."
