LACMA’s 2013 Collectors Committee–Gala Dinner held on April 13 to view proposed acquisitions for the museum and curatorial presentations brought out Will Ferrell & wife Viveca Paulin-Ferrell, Diane Keaton, Bryan Lourd, Ric & Suzanne Kayne, Terry & Jane Semmel, Lynda & Stewart Resnick, Willow Bay, Cheech Marin, LACMA director Michael Govan, LACMA officer Abby Bangser & husband Matthew Bangser,
This was the 28th annual Collectors Committee event and raised more than $3.2 million. The museum added nine new objects to its collection, ranging from one of the oldest surviving wood sculptures from Africa to modern pieces by Thomas Demand and James Turrell.
People often ask about the way LACMA works and how new art gets acquired. There are several committees and board that recommend new art throughout the year and this is the main event where curators make the case to donors and board member for a certain acquisition; sometimes the cases are made in conjunction with a board and this is a formality. If you are interested in working your way into the arts on this level, the places to start are LACMA’s Avant Garde, LACMA’s fashion council, or LACMA’s design council.

This is what a typical presentation looks like

If you love Kate Moss, pool toys and ladies lingerie you will love the new Mario Testino show at PRISM Gallery. We went to opening night over the weekend and a no big deal after party at the Saperstein mansion afterward (better known as “Fleur des Lys“), thrown by the gallery and supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

Inside Weinstein Globes After Party

imageStars flooded the Weinstein after party once the Golden Globe Awards came to an end. Richard Gere was one of the first guests to arrive staying only briefly before leaving and seen looking for his car and calling his agent.

Heidi Klum came later on in the night – she was dancing on a couch in the middle of the main room.

J-Lo and Casper Smart were running around the room – J-Lo caught up with her ex Sean P. Diddy Combs who also attended the party.

Leonardo Di Caprio, Jonah Hill, Jamie Foxx, Quentin Tarantino and Kerry Washington all hung out at the “power table” with Ludovic du Plessis sipping Moet & Chandon – Leo and Jonah Hill left together – Leo was telling a lot of people he will add them to CAA after party list.

Louise Roe and Julianne Hough were breaking it down dancing like crazy.

Robert Pattinson held court outside in a cabana area with his management team – had TONS of security.

Salma Hayek and Amy Adams both tried to skip the red carpet and walk behind the press line and got caught – the entire press line turned around to photograph them.
