Anniversary celebrations can easily turn vaguely sentimental, but the Los Angeles County Museum of Art is closing out its 50th year with a lineup of events more forward-looking than nostalgic. On November 7 the museum holds its annual Art + Film gala—hosted by trustee Eva Chow and Leonardo DiCaprio—honoring artist James Turrell and filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu and featuring a performance by Sam Smith. Now in its fifth year, the event raises funds to increase film-related exhibitions on such notables as David Hockney, Christian Marclay, Tim Burton, and German Expressionist filmmakers.
