Steve Tisch is one of the major donors for the new David Geffen Galleries at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art LACMA. The museum announced that it has now raised $750 million for the project.

“We have reached this milestone thanks to the generosity and hard work of so many people,” LACMA CEO Michael Govan said in a statement. “We offer heartfelt thanks to all those who propelled us to this achievement — from our trustees to first-time donors — and to LACMA’s countless supporters from every part of Los Angeles. The David Geffen Galleries will not only be a sublime new home for LACMA’s collections but a testament to a remarkable wellspring of civic pride and an incredible gift to Los Angeles.”

The museum said the David Geffen Galleries will be its new home for its “diverse, global, and historic collections” and that it is now more than 65% complete and spans Wilshire Boulevard.
