Gala in the Garden
An annual highlight of the Los Angeles cultural calendar, the Hammer Museum’s Gala in the Garden celebrates the artists, innovators, and icons who have made profound contributions to society through their work.
Our fifteenth annual Gala in the Garden honoring Ava DuVernay and Hilton Als took place on Saturday, October 14, 2017. See a recap from the evening.

Past honorees have included Joan Didion, Frank Gehry, Diane Keaton, Tony Kushner, and Joni Mitchell, as well as artists Mark Bradford, Barbara Kruger, Cathy Opie, Ed Ruscha, Cindy Sherman, Kara Walker, and others.
