The 25th Annual LA Art Show is proud to announce that actress Sofia Vergara will be the official host of the 2020 Opening Night Premiere Gala being held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday Feb. 5 from 8 – 11 pm. The beloved Colombian actress is known for her role as Gloria Delgado on the ABC television series Modern Family. The long-running, multiple-Emmy award-winning series is currently in its 11 and final season.

Confirmed Celebrity & Artist Attendees

Amy Smart & Carter Oosterhouse, Andrew Howard & Lauren Sivan, Barry Sloane, Brandon Boyd, Brittney Palmer, Cameron Monaghan, Christina Ochoa, Dave Navarro, Elizabeth Chambers Hammer, Emma Roberts, Georgie Flores, Jade Pettyjohn, Jared Harris, Jeff Ross, Josh Henderson, Josh Kelly, Josh Pence, KaDee Strickland, Lucas Neff, Melia Kreiling, Meredith Salenger, Shepherd Fairey, Tamara Taylor, Teachr, Teddy Sear, Tig Notaro, and more

Proceeds from the event will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the sixth year in a row. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their children live. All proceeds from the sale of Patron and Vanguard tickets and 15 percent of sales of Friend tickets will go directly to the charity. All attendees of the Opening Night Premiere party are supporting the lifesaving mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children. ®

In addition to food, beverages, live music and art, gala attendees will be given a special sneak peek of the LA Art Show’s 200,000 square foot of programming featuring more than 100 galleries from 18 countries. They will have first dibs to explore DIVERSEartLA, a celebration of pride in LA’s cultural diversity, view Oscar-nominated Kazuhiro Tsuji’s three-dimensional portraits of legendary, historical figures and get up close to 25 years of red carpet dresses designed by Sue Wong (and worn by stars like Anne Hathaway, Jessica Biel, Minnie Driver and others).
