Gala in the Garden 2018: A First Look
The Hammer Museum’s courtyard was transformed this evening for our 16th annual Gala in the Garden, honoring award-winning author Margaret Atwood and acclaimed artist Glenn Ligon with tribute speeches by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Chabon and social justice advocate Bryan Stevenson. Event co-chairs included Solange Ferguson, Elizabeth Segerstrom, and Darren Star.
Tonight we welcomed cultural and civic leaders, artists, collectors, patrons of the arts, and entertainment world notables. Chef Suzanne Goin of Lucques once again created the menu. The evening was capped with a performance by Grammy Award-nominated recording artist Leon Bridges. International shopping destination South Coast Plaza partnered with the Hammer Museum to present this year’s Gala in the Garden, celebrating both artists and creative expression in Los Angeles.
