The Party
The San Diego Museum of Art welcomed VIP members for an evening celebrating Sorolla and America, an exhibition featuring more than 150 works by famed Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla.

The Players
SDMA Executive Director Roxana Velásquez led guests—including Ramón Gil Casares, the U.S. Spanish ambassador; and Blanca Pons Sorolla, the artist’s great-granddaughter—on a private tour of the exhibition, taking in “Maria at La Granja,” the first work ever to enter SDMA’s collection, in 1925.

The Scene
When VIPs dined outdoors on the sculpture court, a pale, breezy palette and seaside menu of uni, scallops and grilled fish evoked Sorolla’s serene beach scenes. Caliente! –Photography by Bauman Photographer
