“A Love Letter to L.A.”
The Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP) is hosting a beautifully produced online fundraising Gala themed as “A Love Letter to L.A” on Saturday, October 24, 2020.
This highly interactive virtual Gala will honor acclaimed photographer Douglas Kirkland and his esteemed wife Francoise Kirkland, Los Angeles-based photographer Estevan Oriol, and the Los Angeles Times photography staff. LACP has also secured 100 outstanding photographs from award-winning photographers and galleries which will be for sale online via Artsy.
Various world-famous photographers will be talking about their work and entertainment will include celebrity hosts, special guests, a special showcase of photographs from a juried competition, “The Connected World,” and a virtual post-gala cocktail party.
The event will help to raise funds for LACP’s brand new facility, which opened in November, 2019. This 6,900-square-foot center boasts two dedicated classrooms, a digital lab, a darkroom, a library, and a showcase gallery space. LACP seeks to raise $325,000 to support its programming and community outreach efforts.
Proceeds from the 2020 Fundraising Gala will benefit the Los Angeles Center of Photography. LACP will in turn give back a percentage of the proceeds to support the Los Angeles community adversely affected by the COVID-19 crisis, systemic racism, and police brutality.
