Hammer Gala

Gala in the Garden 2016: A First Look

The Hammer Museum’s courtyard was transformed this evening for our 14th annual Gala in the Garden, honoring Laurie Anderson and Todd Haynes, artists admired for their fearless risk-taking and for their singular yet deeply influential voices. Masters of their respective mediums, they continually push boundaries and garner praise for their exquisite sense of craft.

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, followed by a seated dinner catered by Suzanne Goin of Lucques and a performance by musician Rufus Wainwright. We were thrilled to once again have the generous support of Bottega Veneta, which champions both artists and creative expression.
