Renovate and Relaunch: LACE Benefit Art Auction
Join our community of supporters and artists for an exclusive party to benefit LACE and its dedication to emerging artists, curators, and cultural workers. For more than 40 years, LACE has championed art that focuses on freedom of expression, experimental new ideas, and socially engaging content. This year 100% of Benefit proceeds are in support of our Renovate and Relaunch Campaign as the LACE gallery is being transformed. In its next design, LACE anchors the new Hollywood Arts Collective complex, retaining its street-level storefront location on Hollywood Blvd.
