On Saturday, November 4, more than 650 notable guests from the art, film, fashion, and entertainment industries gathered at LACMA to honor artist Judy Baca and filmmaker David Fincher at the 12th annual Art+Film Gala, which also featured a special performance by Lenny Kravitz. Co-chaired by LACMA trustee Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, with Gucci Creative Director Sabato De Sarno as the Gala Host Committee Chair, this year's event raised more than $5 million to support LACMA’s efforts to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, as well as LACMA’s broader mission. Gucci, which has partnered with LACMA since the first Art+Film Gala in 2011, returned as presenting sponsor of this year’s event. Electric vehicle transportation and additional support was provided by Audi.
