Leonardo DiCaprio & LACMA to Help Honor Clint Eastwood
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art just announced the inaugural Art + Film Gala will help honor actor and filmmaker Clint Eastwood and artist John Baldessari at LACMA on Saturday, November 5, 2011.
DiCaprio and LACMA Trustee Eva Chow will co-chair the evening, which Gucci is also supporting. Proceeds from the gala will be used to support LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission.
This will include the newly reinvigorated film program led by Film Independent’s Elvis Mitchell, as well as exhibitions, acquisitions, and educational programming, in addition to screenings that explore the intersection of art and film.
