The A+D Architecture and Design Museum in Los Angeles (A+D) is celebrating its 12th year of progressive architecture and design programs with its annual fundraiser, “CELEBRATE: THE JOURNEY,” on Saturday, May 11, from 7:00-11:00 p.m.

The evening will feature a runway presentation of one-of-a-kind carry-ons—suitcases, vintage train cases, modern day satchels, futuristic jetpaks and more—designed and imagined by world-renowned artists, architects and designers, including Richard Meier, Steven Ehrlich, Dan Meis, Mehrdad Yazdani, Craig Hodgetts of Hodgetts + Fung, and Christobal Valecillos.

The donated pieces will be auctioned that evening, with all proceeds benefiting the museum. An extensive silent auction will also take place during the evening. The festivities will also include a live DJ, open bar and food from around the globe.

“We cannot wait to see what our design leaders and creative thinkers from around the world bring to this,” says Museum Executive Director Tibbie Dunbar. “We are so fortunate to have the kind of participation that will help us continue to offer the region high-quality exhibitions and events that explore and celebrate how design touches our daily lives.”
