CELEBRATE GALA 2015: SHELTER
A+D ANNUAL GALA
February 14, 2015 7:00 pm
CELEBRATE IS A+D ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN MUSEUM>LOS ANGELES’ ANNUAL GALA THAT BRINGS TOGETHER DESIGN LEADERS AND CREATIVE THINKERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD. THIS YEAR, A+D MUSEUM CELEBRATED OUR NEW HOME IN THE DOWNTOWN ARTS DISTRICT WITH CELEBRATE: SHELTER.
SHELTER celebrated the belief that a well-designed habitat creatively and functionally expresses its relationship to site, neighbor, and occupant.
Celebrate: Shelter was our grand re-opening in our new home, a ware-house-turned-museum in DTLA’s burgeoning Arts District. The centerpiece of the evening was a silent auction of custom-designed “shelters” created by architecture and design luminaries, installed exhibit-style in the new space. All pieces were donated and auctioned off with 100% of proceeds benefitting the museum. Guests were treated to premier cuisine, cocktails, music, and much more while bidding on one-of-a-kind works and on-theme items to grace and invigorate their own shelters. Emcee and actor, Boise Thomas, returned as the evening’s host.
