Gala in the Garden
An annual highlight of the Los Angeles cultural calendar, the Hammer Museum’s Gala in the Garden celebrates artists and icons who have made profound contributions to society through their work.
This year's Gala in the Garden will take place on October 8, 2022, and will honor artist and educator Charles Gaines and lawyer and transgender rights activist Chase Strangio. For ticket information and other inquiries, please email email@example.com
