LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) announce the acquisition of eight artworks through the museum’s 26th Annual Collectors Committee fundraiser. The event featured a weekend of curator-led art presentations, private dinners at trustee homes, and a gala dinner-including a live auction-where members vote on artworks to add to the museum’s permanent collection. This year, the eighty-three voting members raised more than $3 million-breaking records for the third year in a row. Prior to voting, Trustee Steve Tisch stepped forward and purchased Christian Marclay’s The Clock (2010) for the museum. Over the course of the night, other individual donors purchased artworks for the museum as well: Donald Judd’s Prototype Desk (1978) was purchased for LACMA by Kelvin Davis in honor of his architect/artist brother, Paul Davis; an ancient Peruvian textile (1500-1600) was purchased by LACMA Trustee
