Celebrate an evening of artistic decadence with splendid flair. We’ll dance, drink, and muse with people whose talents span a mixture of mediums, sounds, and textures—in a one-of-a-kind space. Atop beautiful Olive Hill, close to the stars, in the striking Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired Gallery in Barnsdall Park this celebration will feature local connoisseurs to guide you through tastings of spectacular wines and beers offered in local establishments, an eclectic sampling of L.A.’s best gourmet food trucks, and amazingly talented DJs who dare to make you dance.

Celebrate the Gallery and help us raise fun, friends, and a little cash to continue to support Los Angeles’ most important young artists!

Please note: Adults-only event. No one under 21 will be allowed entry.
