Los Angeles museum-goers are no stranger to seeing Cindy Sherman photos at the Broad; highlights from the contemporary photographer's landmark "Untitled Film Still" series were among our must-see works of art in the museum's inaugural exhibition. Now, the Broad is preparing to put nearly all of its Sherman photos on public display.

In the Broad's first special exhibition since its opening last fall, the Downtown Los Angeles art museum will present "Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life," with almost 120 photos from the artist's ongoing fascination with 20th century film and celebrity. The exhibition, which marks the first major Sherman show in LA in nearly 20 years, will run June 11 through October 2.

In another first, the exhibition will require purchasing advanced timed tickets for the otherwise free museum. Tickets will cost $12 for adults and be free for children 17 and under; expect them to go on sale sometime this spring. 

"Cindy Sherman: Imitation of Life" will take over the museum's first floor gallery space, but don't worry: Yayoi Kusama’s popular "Infinity Mirrored Room" isn't going anywhere quite yet.
