The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) will be opening its doors for leaders in the film, art, fashion, and entertainment industries for a night honoring entertainment legends.
The seventh annual Art+Film Gala on November 4th will honor artist Mark Bradford and filmmaker George Lucas for their continued commitment to arts education. The Gala will be co-chaired by LACMA trustee Eva Chow and Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio and presented by Gucci.
Bradford’s work was first displayed at the LACMA over a decade ago in 2002. Since then, he has continued to maintain a longstanding relationship with the museum. He is also a co-curator and artist of the museum’s founding exhibit at Charles White Elementary School. Lucas, best known for his cinematic legends such as the Star Wars saga and Indiana Jones, founded the George Lucas Educational Foundation, which aims to help K-12 students learn more effectively. He is also funding construction of a new museum in Los Angeles which he will fill with his personal collection of fine and contemporary art.
Proceeds from the gala will benefit LACMA and their initiatives including exhibits, screenings, and educational programming. To learn more about the LACMA, click here.
