MOCA board leans toward Broad deal

The New York Times reports that the Museum of Contemporary Art board reached a preliminary agreement on Thursday to accept Eli Broad's financial rescue offer, while the L.A. Times adds the nugget that museum director Jeremy Strick resigned in a tearful scene at the private meetingof the board. A museum spokeswoman said, however, that Strick "did not submit his resignation." The Broad deal is also said to be very tentative. For those keeping score at home, the NYT was up first with the news out of the Los Angeles meeting. NYT, LAT
