Now that new man-in-charge Charles Young is leading Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art into a newly-resurrected financial future, there were bound to be cuts in the interest of streamlining.

The museum said it plans to reduce its staff by 20 percent and trim operating expenses to obtain an annual savings of about $4.4 million. The decision, which eliminates 32 full- and part-time jobs, was made to help restore the institution’s financial health, according to a statement released by the museum.
