This weekend music and art lovers gathered at the new Perry Rubenstein Gallery in West Hollywood for the opening of the Americana Project, a collaboration between rock legend Neil Young and artist Shepard Fairey. This special project was in honor of Young releasing a new album, “Americana,” with his band Crazy Horse.

The night drew an array of famous faces—from Adrian Grenier and Kate Hudson to Moby and Vince Vaughn. Rubenstein recently moved his eponymous gallery from New York to Los Angeles and will officially open the doors June 26 with a Helmut Newton exhibit, while the Fairey show opens two days later on June 28.

Guests milled about the indoor/outdoor space on the beautiful LA evening, chatting, sipping cocktails and discussing the 11 works Fairey created, each one inspired by classic tunes on Young’s new album, including “This Land is Your Land” and “Oh Susannah.” There’s nothing quite like a good pairing of art and music.
