Last night, El Museo del Barrio hosted a glamorous kick-off at OMAR’s in honor of their Gala taking place on May 12th. Guests included Gala Chairs Maria Eugenia Maury and Narciso Rodriguez, Gala honorees Ruben & Isabel Toledo and Omar Hernandez, owner of OMAR’s, who generously donated the space for the evening.
Jessica Garza-Bueron, the Young Gala Chair spoke to AZ about the gala, saying, “I am excited about this year’s gala because it will be inspired by the Antonio Lopez exhibition, which means it will be epic, fun, unique and fashion filled. It’s the epitome of the Latin America culture and its impact on our society. We have an outstanding team working so hard to make this event unforgettable and successful, and as you can see, we are already having the best time. No one throws a party better than the Latins, and our galas live to that standard.”
The museum’s annual gala will take place on May 12th at The Plaza Hotel, in tribute to Antonio Lopez, the late fashion illustrator whose exhibition will open at the museum this summer (June 14-Nov. 26).
