Off the Wall: 30th Anniversary Gala and Art Auction

Off the Wall: 30th Anniversary Gala and Art Auction
Dates: Saturday, Jun 1, 2019
Time: 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM

You are cordially invited to join us and celebrate 30 years of transforming lives and communities through the power of art. Bid on over 60 works by celebrated artists, including Edgar Arceneaux, Carmen Argote, Herb Ritts, Alison Saar, Henry Taylor, and more. Enjoy craft cocktails, fine wines, and our signature "Strolling Supper," lovingly curated and managed by Armory board member Gale Kohl of Gale's Restaurant. This year's special musical guests are Queerteet, Los Angeles' premiere LGBTQ string ensemble, who will perform classical compositions with a contemporary twist. All Off the Wall proceeds directly support the Armory's exhibitions, education, and community programs.
