Art Ball Benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art

The Dallas Museum of Art will be transformed into a resort setting with the best French bistro cuisine and live entertainment playing throughout the evening for the Coastline-themed Art Ball this Saturday, April 24.

Chairman Melissa Fetter, who has raised an unprecedented $1.1 million in underwriting, will welcome guests to the cocktail reception and opening of the silent auction of art and luxury items presented by Neiman Marcus. As an added bonus, purchases made in the silent auction will be eligible for Neiman Marcus InCircle Points! Patrons at this elegant black tie event will also get a private preview of the DMA exhibition Coastlines: Images of Land and Sea which opens the same evening. This is the first time the Art Ball and an exhibit opening has been on the same evening.

After the reception guests will enjoy a seated dinner and the event’s signature Live Auction. The event concludes with a late night party set in the "Beach Club".

Proceeds benefit the Dallas Museum of Art. The DMA has a proud history of serving the North Texas community and connecting art and people, and welcomes over 600,000 visitors each year. The Museum was established in 1903 and features an outstanding collection of more than 24,000 works of art from around the world, from ancient to modern times. In 2008, the Museum opened the Center for Creative Connections, a ground-breaking space devoted to presenting interactive experiences with art for all generations and learning styles to explore and begin their journey into the collections. One of the distinguishing features of the Museum is its varied and dynamic programs, events, and exhibitions to engage visitors more fully with the art.

Sponsorships are available from $2,500 to $100,000. For tickets or for more information, please contact Jennifer Wisler at 214-922-1353 or ArtBall@DallasMuseumofArt.org.
