60th Anniversary Gala: Diamonds of History

Friday, September 30, 2022 at 7:00pm - 11:00pm

Join us for LASM's 60th Anniversary Gala: Diamonds of History! Our annual fundraiser will take place on Friday, September 30, 2022, from 7 PM to 11 PM at the museum in downtown Baton Rouge.

LASM’s 60th Anniversary Gala: Diamonds of History will feature a variety of entertainment, a silent auction, a raffle for diamond earrings donated by Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry, and gourmet food and spirits.

Chaired by Adrienne Connelly Adams, Chelsea Norris, and Lexie Polito, the fundraiser will not only celebrate the museum’s sixtieth anniversary but also the opening of MIGHTY WOMEN by New Orleans-based mixed-media artist, ASHLEY LONGSHORE in its Main Gallery.

All funds raised by the Gala will support the renovation of LASM’s hands-on children’s galleries into The Seed, an innovative space where young artists and scientists will grow through the hands-on exploration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics).
