An Evening Among the Roses: Color OUTside the Lines

The 6th annual An Evening Among the Roses is a chance for everyone—including LGBTQ family, friends, and the general public—to recognize and celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer members of the community for their many contributions to The Huntington. Don't miss this one-night-only garden party with music, specialty cocktails, hors d'oeuvres and dancing in the spectacular Rose Garden! Fanciful garden party attire encouraged!

Enjoy an exclusive cocktail reception on the grand terrace of The Huntington Art Gallery with Honoree Lari Pittman, a special performance by Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, and viewing of rare collection materials.

7–10 p.m.: THE PARTY

Renowned LA-based artist Lari Pittman will be the evening's special honored guest. The Huntington exhibited his Mood Books in 2016, and his works have been on view at other prestigious museums including the Getty, LACMA, and MoMA. Pittman's works draw from a variety of aesthetic traditions, ranging from decorative art and design to advertising and folk art. His paintings and drawings are a personal rebellion against rigid, puritanical dichotomies, and his deployment of simultaneously occurring narratives and opulent imagery reflects the heterogeneity of American society, the artist's Colombian heritage, and the distorting effects of hypercapitalism on everyday life.
