The opening of the Broad Museum of Contemporary Art has been delayed.

The Broad, which will be located across from the historic Walt Disney Concert Hall on Grand and 2nd street in downtown, will open sometime in 2015.

But the new plaza that will accompany the museum is set to open this fall.

The public plaza will feature a new restaurant and a wide lawn for outdoor entertainment.

For more, we're joined by Joanne Heyler, founding director of The Broad Art Foundation.
