Heaven gala takes over L.A.'s 2nd Street tunnel

The Art of Elysium’s sixth annual Heaven gala was a very artful affair, thanks to costume designer Colleen Atwood.

Every year the org, which helps hospitalized children, picks an artist to transform a space into their personal vision of heaven. On Saturday night, Atwood transformed the 2nd Street highway tunnel in downtown L.A into a space packed with stars instead of cars.

David Arquette, recipient of the Spirit of Elysium Award, said he was no stranger to the location. “Strangely enough, this isn’t the first time I’ve partied in the 2nd Street tunnel. Last time was with a can of spray paint,” he noted as a big blue eye watched the tunnel’s partygoers and images of clouds floated on the walls. Arquette went on to credit the org with “providing kids with an opportunity to escape with imagination.”
