More than 600 guests came out to honor artist Mark Bradford and filmmaker George Lucas at the LACMA‘s Seventh annual Art + Film Gala. The event raised more than $4.4 million for the museum’s film initiatives, exhibitions, acquisitions and education. Donations increased greatly from last year’s gala, which raised more than $3.4 million.

Co-chaired by Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio, the gala was made possible with the support of Gucci. The Italian fashion house decked out a number of guests in its latest runway creations.
