LACMA's Future and the Zumthor Building

Hosted by

LA County's Museum of Art celebrated its 50th year on Saturday night.  The gala revealed $675 million worth of new art and a crowd that included Hollywood celebrities — a far cry from the establishment types that inaugurated the institution five decades ago.  We talk with Director Michael Govan about changes he's made and his vision of LACMA's future, including a controversial new building -- no longer being called, "The Blob."

Also, a precious heritage won't be sold to the highest bidder: arts and craft made in Japanese-American internment camps during World War II.
