Ai Weiwei, Celebs, and a Live Hawk: Leonardo DiCaprio Will Host a Zero-Waste Art Auction to Raise Money for Wildlife

One of the year’s most buzzed-about art auctions is set to kick off this weekend, but it isn’t hosted by Sotheby’s, Christies, or any other house. It’s the annual benefit auction for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

The event, on September 15, has been scaled back from its four lavish previous iterations in St. Tropez, yet it’s nonetheless expected to be a star-studded affair. Hosted on a sustainable vineyard in California’s Sonoma County, the zero-waste evening will feature an art auction, celeb attendees like Edward Norton, Tobey Maguire, and a special performance by Coldplay singer Chris Martin. Oh, there will also be a live hawk flying around.
