With more than 150,000 works from ancient to modern, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is the largest museum in the western United States and still expanding. Although it can trace its roots to 1910, it is a relatively new museum established in 1961 when it was separated from the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science and Art. On a 20-acre (8 ha) campus with multiple buildings, it has a Greek and Roman collection that was donated mostly by William Randolph Hearst and a strong American art collection in the three-floor Broad Contemporary Art Museum, including work by Richard Serra, Cindy Sherman, Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns. It also presents exhibitions, films, talks, concerts and special events.
