Ed Ruscha, Woody, and the World’s Hottest Pepper

As you may have read, this weekend we held our second annual Art+Film Gala, at which we paid tribute to Ed Ruscha and Stanley Kubrick. This is a major event for LACMA that raises funds to support LACMA’s initiative to make film more central to the museum’s curatorial programming, while also funding LACMA’s broader mission. We’re happy to see that the event, sponsored by Gucci, raised more than $3.5 million for the museum.

As part of the tribute to Ruscha—who also has an exhibition currently on view at LACMA—filmmaker Lance Acord created a short film, Ed Ruscha, Woody, and the World’s Hottest Pepper, produced by Park Pictures and LACMA. We liked it so much we wanted to share it with you. (While you’re at it, check out last year’s film about John Baldessari , narrated by Tom Waits and directed by Henry Joost and Rel Schulman.)
