Featuring a slew of celebrity guests and showcase of one-of-a-kind artwork by more than 25 renowned artists, last night’s Elephants Forever Exhibition at the Angel Orensanz foundation brought together art, fun, and technology for a night dedicated to one of the world’s most iconic–and endangered species.

The Elephants Forever charity is helmed by philanthropists Ruth Powys and Lexi Bowes-Lyon, respectively the CEO and Creative Director of Elephant Family. Both were in attendance along with Susan Sarandon, Fern Mallis, Waris Ahluwalia, Zani Gugelman, Genevieve Jones, Jessica Joffe, Keren Craig, Amirah Kassem, Chloe Norgaard, Michael Avedon, Douglas Friedman, Minnie Mortimer, Alexi and Giada Lubomirski, Yvonne Force Villareal, Mazdack & Zanna Rassi, Sarah Hoover Sachs, Scott Lipps, and Andreja Pejic. 

Elephants Forever is the largest dedicated fundraiser in the world for elephants this year, with the exhibition acting as a prelude to next week’s Oct. 27th Elephants Forever auction hosted by Owen Wilson at Sotheby’s.
