The Broad is the first major art museum in Los Angeles and one of only a handful of museums in the country to achieve LEED Gold status. The Broad’s environmentally friendly features include electric car charging stations, bike parking spaces, rooftop drains routed to street level gardens that filter runoff, and high-efficiency plumbing fixtures that help reduce indoor water use by 40 percent. In addition, with easy walking access to residential and commercial buildings, restaurants and other cultural amenities, and close proximity to public transit and adjacency to the new Metro Regional Connector station at the corner of 2nd and Hope Streets (anticipated opening in 2021), The Broad aims to be in the top tier of eco-conscious, efficient and sustainable museums.

From Hank Greenberg and Sandy Koufax to Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Robinson, Roberto Clemente, Fernando Valenzuela and Ichiro Suzuki, these players didn’t just play the game - they changed it. For generations of American Jews and other minorities, they served as athletic, cultural and ethical role models. Through more than 130 original objects - including game-worn uniforms, films and historic footage, awards, baseball cards, and signed memorabilia - the exhibition pays tribute to these major league game changers and, just as importantly, the community of fans they inspired.
