Virgo Rising, this year’s annual gala, celebrated the Center's year-round programming and longstanding commitment to building community through art and architecture. The benefit dinner coincided with R.M. Schindler’s birthday and featured a constellation of rising chefs.

Attendees sipped on A Few Good Things during an evening featuring a cocktail reception, an intimate dinner, surprises, and special guests, all taking place in the gardens of the Schindler House.
