LOS ANGELES’ A+D MUSEUM’S GALA FUNDRAISER BRINGS THE CREATIVE COMMUNITY TOGETHER TO ‘CELEBRATE: DTLA’

The A+D Architecture and Design Museum > Los Angeles (A+D) celebrates its 15th year of cutting-edge exhibitions and progressive architecture and design programs with its annual gala and fundraiser, “CELEBRATE: DTLA,” Saturday, January 14, 2017 from 7:00-11:00pm at 900 East 4th Street., Los Angeles, CA, in the heart of the Arts District. 


This year, A+D celebrates a new home Downtown Los Angeles. The Arts District is changing, along with the city’s arts and museum culture at large. We celebrate an infusion of new ideas and youthful energy as we honor the legacy of our founders and the values A+D holds dear. In a time of transition, we remain a stronghold for architecture and design exhibition and education.


A DTLA-themed silent auction will also take place during the evening. All donated pieces (modeled and displayed) will be auctioned that evening, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Museum. The festivities will include a live DJ, Michael Stock (KXLU), an emcee, LA writer, Doug Suisman, open bar, Hors d'oeuvres, and Special guest appearances scheduled by the Mayor, Eric Garcetti, and the City Controller, Ron Galperin. The Celebrate Gala will feature one of a kind, postcard art by architects and artists from the Los Angeles area and beyond designed specifically with DTLA in mind. 


The A+D Museum has big plans for 2017. Forthcoming events include a ten-year CityLab retrospective, Decoding Asian Urbanism, and the Venice Biennale: The Architectural Imagination. We will host new interactive and family-friendly displays that will galvanize future architects and designers. We will go off-site to highlight historic Latino sites in Long Beach. We will hold lectures, workshops, book signings, panel discussions, and free town halls where we can communicate with each other, share ideas, and expand the impact of design in our city. 2017 will be a year of partnerships and pop-ups, embracing a spirit of entrepreneurship while holding fast to all that has made us a cornerstone in the A+D community.


Proceeds from Celebrate: DTLA will make all of this happen.
