A house featured in The Big Lebowski has been donated to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the museum announced Wednesday.
Known as the home of pornography producer Jackie Treehorn (played by Ben Gazzara) in the Coen Brothers’ 1998 cult classic film, it was designed by renowned architect John Lautner and has been owned by investor and NBA super-fan James Goldstein since 1972. Rihanna also had a birthday there.
The property’s most distinctive features are its glass walls and furniture made out of concrete. Other details of the $40 million gift, from a news release:
The acquisition, which LACMA plans to use as an events space, is part of the museum’s larger goal to acquire “landmarks of Los Angeles residential architecture,” as the Los Angeles Times reported.
