Renovate and Relaunch: LACE Benefit Art Auction
Join our community of supporters and artists for an intimate party to benefit LACE. As the city’s longest-running incubator for contemporary artists, curators, and cultural workers, LACE has championed art that focuses on freedom of expression, experimental new ideas, and socially engaging content for over 40 years.
This year 100% of Benefit proceeds are in support of our Renovate and Relaunch Comprehensive Campaign as the LACE gallery is transformed and the organization builds its inaugural three-year Program Fund. In its next design, LACE anchors the new Hollywood Arts Collective complex, retaining its street-level storefront location on Hollywood Blvd.
