    Gala in the Garden 2014

    The Hammer Museum’s courtyard was transformed this evening for our 12th annual Gala in the Garden, honoring artist Mark Bradford and musician and cultural icon Joni Mitchell. In celebration of these extraordinary individuals, we welcomed cultural luminaries and civic leaders, as well as renowned artists, premier collectors, and devoted patrons of the arts. The evening included a viewing of current exhibitions and cocktails followed by a seated dinner, catered by Suzanne Goin of Lucques. We were thrilled to once again have the generous support of Bottega Veneta. Scroll down for a first look at the faces and fashions of Gala in the Garden 2014.
