The Los Angeles County Museum of Art has announced that Grammy-winning, British singer-songwriter and multi-hyphenate extraordinaire Sting will perform at the 2013 Art + Film Gala this fall.

The event will be in honor of artist David Hockney, a mover and shaker of midcentury pop art, and director Martin Scorsese, whose "The Wolf of Wall Street" hits theaters November 15. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, cochair of the gala alongside LACMA trustee Eva Chow.

Set to take place on Saturday, November 2 at LACMA, Art + Film also celebrates LACMA's collaboration with The Film Foundation and The Annenberg Foundation, and their recent joint restoration of four films by Agnes Varda. 

Art + Film tends to bring out big stars. Last year, Stanley Kubrick was toasted and Florence and the Machine performed.
