George Lucas And Mark Bradford Celebrated At Gucci Sponsored 2017 LACMA gala

Celebs and notables from art, film, fashion, entertainment and corporate turned up in their finest, some wearing just seen on the Spring/Summer ’18 Gucci, on Saturday November 4 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for its seventh annual LACMA Art+Film Gala, honoring acclaimed artist Mark Bradford and renowned award-winning filmmaker George Lucas, husband to Chicago corporate exec Ariel Investement’s Mellody Hobson.

The 2017 LACMA Art-Film gala was co-chaired, for the seventh consecutive year by Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, both LACMA trustees. If you think gala tickets in Chicago are pricey, the individual tickets for the 2017 LACMA Art+Film Gala started at $5,000 (must be some good surf and turf dinner). Naomi Campbell, Jared Leto, Kim Kardashian West, Salma Hayek Pinault and François-Henri Pinault, Alejandro G. Iñárritun and Maria Eladia Hagerman, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha, Jane Fonda, Lee Daniels, Lee Byung-hun, Amy Adams, Petra Collins, Gucci CEO Marco Bizzarri, Grant Hill and Tamia Hill, Charlotte Casiraghi and many more were some of the 600 guests all in attendance for the evening of celebration art+film. Annie Lennox performed.

A month ago, LACMA announced the historic $150 million donation from philanthropist and entertainment executive David Geffen that will go towards the Building LACMA Campaign. This is LACMA’s largest single cash gift from an individual in the museum’s history; Geffen’s philanthropic support also makes him the largest individual donor to the Building LACMA campaign. The new Peter Zumthor-designed building will be called the David Geffen Galleries.
