A snapshot-worthy city moment, captured!
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
Like Chris Burden’s iconic lamppost installation outside LACMA, Jason Sudeikis and fiancée Olivia Wilde radiated in their own right at the museum’s third annual Art + Film Gala. Honoring Martin Scorsese and David Hockney, the black-tie affair raised a record $4.1 million for future exhibitions and LACMA’s revered film program—a fitting cause given the event’s co-chair, Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor, along with Sudeikis and Wilde, the dashing couple in this photo snapped by photographer Jason Merritt, joined 600 guests in also commending the work of Agnès Varda. Four of the French filmmaker’s pieces were preserved by an unlikely partnership between the museum, the Annenberg Foundation and Scorsese’s The Film Foundation. The Gucci-sponsored, multifaceted event bridged the gap between the creative arts, leaving Angelenos as inspired as the masterminds whose work pervades LACMA.
