Ruscha joins MOCA’s board


In keeping with its practice of enlisting artists as advisors and decision makers, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles has elected Edward Ruscha to its board of trustees. A world-renowned figure who has 33 works in MOCA’s permanent collection, Ruscha is also well represented at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, which recently announced its acquisition of 156 of his prints.

At MOCA, Ruscha joins artist John Baldessari, a trustee since 2000, and new board members Susan Epstein Gersh, a longtime supporter of the museum, and David G. Johnson, an attorney and entertainment industry executive.
