Time Out says

The Marciano Art Foundation has taken over an old Masonic temple on Wilshire Boulevard and turned it into a massive contemporary art museum. It’s more than just a means for Guess co-founders Maurice and Paul Marciano to store and show off their private collection, though; the brothers have crafted the space to be an artist’s playground, particularly the massive ground-floor theater gallery, which has hosted large-scale works from the likes of Ai Weiwei and Olafur Eliasson. In turn, they’ve birthed a museum that balances traditional white-walled gallery spaces (or in the case of a permanent Yayoi Kusama installation, red-and-white polka-dotted walls) with cavernous halls whose only limitation is an artist’s creativity. Admission is free, though timed tickets are required and are available a month in advance.



Address: 4357 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles
Price: Free with timed ticket
Opening hours: Thu, Fri 11am–5pm; Sat 10am–6pm; Sun 11am–5pm
