The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego in La Jolla welcomed guests to its annual gala Sept. 9 for a dinner and after-party celebrating art and the museum’s upcoming exhibition by Kelly Akashi.

Akashi, a Los Angeles-based artist who often pairs hand-blown glass or wax forms with bronze casts of her own hand to make a unique record of the slow-changing human body, was a guest at the gala in the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Building.
