An Artful Evening at CAAM


The annual gala "An Artful Evening at CAAM", a fundraising event to support the California African American Museum (CAAM) will be held Saturday, October 6, 2012.  

This elegant, black-tie affair is one of Los Angeles' premier philanthropic events of the fall. Guests can support through purchasing tickets, table sponsorships, silent auction items and direct donations, all in an environment packed with great food and first rate honorees, entertainment, music, dancing and complimentary parking.

The festivities will transform CAAM's soaring courtyard into a celebration and an illumination of the art, courage and history of two extraordinary men. For this seventh annual event CAAM & Friends will present well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Awards to Academy Award winner, Sidney Poitier, and United States Gracie Fellow for Visual Arts winner, John Outterbridge.

Proceeds received through Friends are used to provide financial support to CAAM's educational outreach programs for students and teachers, as well as the development and FREE delivery of inspiring exhibitions, creative workshops and enriched educational content.
