Last December, our sister site Curbed LA revealed that Miracle Mile's A+D Architecture and Design Museum locked down a two-year lease in an Arts District warehouse at Fourth and Colyton. After a few months of keeping renovations under wraps, the museum is set to reopen on June 27th to align with A+D's fifth-annual fundraiser, Celebrate: Shelter.
Taking place 7pm to 11pm, A+D tells us that "the centerpiece of the evening will be a silent auction of custom designed 'shelters' created by architecture and design luminaries, installed exhibit-style in the new space." All pieces are donated and will be auctioned that evening, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the museum. (Purchase tix here.)
"In our new DTLA space we hope to see even more A+D members and friends as we raise crucial funds for the amazing exhibits, installations, and programs that are planned for the year ahead," adds Tibbie Dunbar, A+D's executive director.
