Wally Sets the Stage to Honor Alice Waters at Hammer Gala

Nov 01, 2010

Artists, philanthropists, gallerists, collectors, and entertainment world notables gathered at the Hammer Museum’s eighth annual Gala in the Garden on October 9, 2010. The Gala, which raised over $1 million for the Hammer’s renowned exhibitions and public programs, was held in the Museum’s elegant outdoor courtyard and honored artist Charles Ray and author, chef, and food activist Alice Waters. The event was co-chaired by Viveca Paulin-Ferrell and Will Ferrell and featured tribute speeches by artist Jeff Wall for Ray and actress Jane Fonda for Waters. A “living wall” of plants, designed by Woolly Pockets, was featured as a backdrop to the presentation stage –a nod to Water’s commitment to sustainability – and helped create the rich and textured elements of the overall decor.
