Gucci + Leonardo + Spielberg to Make LACMA Gala a Star-Studded Event

LACMA

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) is pulling out all the stops for it’s 2nd Annual Art + Film Gala on October 27th, honoring filmmaker Stanley Kubrick and artist Ed Ruscha.

In addition to co-chairs Leonardo DiCaprio and Eva Chow, Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini steps up to the very visible position of Gala Host Committee Chair, raising the stakes of Gucci’s continued sponsorship of the event.

Filmmaker Steven Spielberg is scheduled to pay tribute to Kubrick, and luminaries from the art, film, fashion and entertainment industries are expected to attend in record numbers.

Last year’s inaugural event, honoring filmmaker Clint Eastwood and conceptual artist John Baldessari, raised $3 million dollars and drew famous names like Kate Hudson, Jane Fonda, Olivia Wilde, Eli Roth, Julian Schnabel, Gus Van Sant, Bob Iger, Barry Meyer, Jeff Robinov and Harvey Weinstein and LACMA board members who included Brian Grazer, Michael Lynton and Steve Tisch.

This year, for the first time–both honorees will have shows at LACMA proximate to the Gala. “Stanley Kubrick,” opening Nov. 1, will includes sets, costumes, props, photographs from some of the film maker’s iconic works, including 2001:A Space Odyssey and The Shining.” “Ed Ruscha: Standard,” opens Sept. 22, and will showcase almost 100 of the pop artist’s works from the museum’s collection, including paintings and books devoted to prints and photographs.

Tables are priced at $50,000 and $100,000 with individual tickets at $5,000 and $10,000.
