This annual event highlights a profound legacy of support for the museum and our commitment to building and caring for a world-class collection. Ann’s devotion to this weekend of art, food, and wine has generated crucial support for the continued growth and distinction of our holdings, and we are truly honored and grateful for her commitment to LACMA.”

“Collectors Committee Weekend celebrates LACMA’s diverse collection by adding new acquisitions that will further strengthen the museum’s holdings of art, all while enjoying incredible food, wine, and good company,” said Ann Colgin. “This amazing weekend would not be possible without the support of the Friday night hosts, the incredible chefs and vintners, the donors to the auction, and the Collectors Committee members who participated in this two-day event. I am incredibly grateful for their partnership.”
