luminaries from the worlds of film, television, sports, business and of course, art, gathered at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for the 10th Annual Art + Film Gala. The event—honoring painters Amy Sherald and Kehinde Wiley, along with filmmaker, Steven Spielberg—commemorated the much-anticipated west coast stop of The Obama Portraits Tour, which opened on Sunday. Presented by Gucci, with additional support from Audi, Art + Film was co-chaired by Leonardo DiCaprio and Eva Chow. After D-Nice kicked off the festivities, guests including Lil Nas X, Serena Williams and Quavo, as well as Jodie Turner-Smith, Bethann Hardison and Tina Knowles Lawson, among them, milled about before the program began. Tracee Ellis Ross was on-hand to introduce Sherald, who created the painting, Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama and Ava DuVernay introduced Wiley, who painted Barack Obama. Here’s all the melanated magic who attended the event.
