LACMA Art+Film Gala To Honor Martin Scorsese, David Hockney - The Hollywood Reporter


Snagging Scorsese as an honoree for its benefit represents a very public hug between the museum and the director, who once criticized LACMA's handling of its film programming.

In a symbol of how far the Los Angles County Museum of Art has come in strengthening its ties to the city's film world, director Martin Scorsese will step to the podium on Nov. 2 as an honoree at the museum's third annual Art+Film Gala. Scorsese's fellow honoree at the benefit gala will be artist David Hockney.
