The National Museum of Animals & Society began in 2012 as a website and later became an art gallery in Hollywood, the first of its kind dedicated to animals and animal rights, with Ellen DeGeneres, Portia de Rossi, Kesha, Lionel Richie and other celebrities as honorary board members. Now named the Animal Museum, the space celebrates its new home in downtown with a grand opening, featuring vegetarian hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, DJ Michelle Pesce, special guests and current exhibits "Crazy Cat Ladies," "Entangled" and "Fashion Tails." The latter features Eva Danielle's photographs of more than 70 famous people, including Sharon Osbourne, Russell Simmons, Jason Alexander and Kevin Nealon, with their rescue pets.
