"I don't think there is anything that communicates better than art. It is quicker than language and clearer than philosophy."  Frederick R. Weisman

The Foundation estate, annex, and surrounding gardens are open to the public only by advance reservation tours,  offered at 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday to Friday.

In 1982, Frederick R. Weisman purchased the Los Angeles estate to serve as a showcase for his personal collection of 20th-century art. He and his wife Billie Milam Weisman, an art conservator and curator, worked together to create a unique environment located within the late 1920s Mediterranean-style villa. In 1991, the Weismans added a contemporary annex, or art pavilion, to accommodate larger-scale works. 

More than 400 works of art are on display, including works by leading European Modernists, postwar art, and Contemporary California artists.
