The premiere of Art Sense Gala debuted Oct. 8 on behalf of the Orange County Museum of Art and a cool million was raised for the museum one year in advance of its official public opening, set for October 2022.

The big event unfolded at the construction site located on the property rising at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. The modern architectural statement is in the creative hands of Morphosis Architects, under the director of Pritzker Prize winner Thom Mayne and partner-in-charge Brandon Welling.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is working with limited gallery space, having recently torn down most of its east campus to launch construction of a new building. Given the impact on its fall exhibition schedule, now might be a good time for LACMA to initiate a name change.

How about the Los Angeles County Museum of Mostly Modern + Contemporary Art?
