Hammer Gala

Gala in the Garden 2015: A First Look

The Hammer Museum’s courtyard was transformed this evening for our 13th annual Gala in the Garden, honoring two extraordinary individualsDiane Keaton and Paul McCarthy. 

Tonight we welcomed cultural luminaries and civic leaders as well as renowned artists, collectors, and devoted patrons of the arts. The evening began with cocktails and a preview of our fall exhibitions The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris and UH-OH: Frances Stark 1991-2015, followed by a seated dinner catered by Suzanne Goin of Lucques. We were thrilled to once again have the generous support of Bottega Veneta.
