Artists and Legends Gala- Palm Springs Art Museum

Special Celebrity Report:
On Saturday the Palm Springs Art Museum held its "Artists and Legends" Gala event, honoring Dennis Hopper, Frank Gehry and Ed Ruscha. Dennis Hopper is an accomplished actor & esteemed director but also a painter and photographer. Apparently he is also an expert on modern art and has one of the most extensive private collections in the United States. Frank Gehry is an artist known for his post-modernist sculptures and architecture. Ed Ruscha is a painter, printmaker and filmmaker. The glittering evening was also a fundraiser for the museum and was attended by the Palm Springs elite and a Hollywood contingent.

Dennis Hopper is an interesting guy. I met him at a benefit for school arts programs and he is very affable. Had no idea he was so into art himself. I thought it was more for show. guess not.
