Hollywood celebrates the newest art space in L.A.
LOS ANGELES — With all the glamor of a film premiere and the pomp of the Academy Awards, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art celebrated the opening of the Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion with a glitzy party, complete with Hollywood heavyweights, art icons and entertainment by Christina Aguilera.
Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, Teri Hatcher, James Franco, Joan Collins, Don Cheadle, Molly Sims and Olivia Wilde were among the actors in the star-studded crowd. Producers Brian Grazer and Mark Burnett and reality starlets Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian also attended Saturday’s fundraising event, which generated nearly $5 million for LACMA.
The party honored the building’s benefactors, who donated $45 million toward its construction.
The Lynda and Stewart Resnick Exhibition Pavilion opens to the public on Oct. 2.
