Museum of Contmeporary Art, MOCA...HOLD FOR RELEASE UNTIL 3:05 A.M. EST. THIS PHOTO MAY NOT BE PUBLISHED, BROADCAST OR POSTED ONLINE BEFORE 3:05 A.M. EST - "Airplane Parts," a sculpture by Nancy Rubins made of scraps of old airplanes wired together into a massive junk tree, greets visitors to the Museum of Contemporary Art Monday, Jan. 6, 2014 in downtown Los Angeles. The museum, which struggled for years for financial survival, has quadrupled its endowment to more than $100 million in the past nine months through a fundraising campaign that museum officials say won support from dozens of deep-pocketed Los Angeles arts patrons. MOCA, which planned to announce the accomplishment later Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2013, said it ensures the long-term survival and independence of one of the countryís pre-eminent public repositories for contemporary art.
