Eugene McDermott Director Maxwell L. Anderson and Art Ball Chairman Nancy Carlson recently announced that Art Ball 50: Self Portrait, benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), will be held Saturday, April 11, 2015.
Art Ball 50 will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Art Ball and will feature a host committee comprised of past Art Ball Chairs. Proceeds from Art Ball directly affect the DMA’s ongoing commitment to providing access to its collection and a wide range of exhibitions and educational and public programs to the community.
Guests gathered in Grange Hall for the highly anticipated announcement party where Anderson and Carlson pronounced that a special year deserves a special theme, and for Art Ball 50, the theme will be “Self Portrait.”
This year’s theme embodies reflection and will also tie in several self--‐portraits by acclaimed artists in the Dallas Museum of Art collection. The 50th annual gala will include a multi--‐course seated dinner, a luxury live auction, and a festive after party chaired by Jackie Bolin and Erin Wasson.
Dallas’ premier party planner, Todd Fiscus of Todd Events, will help to execute Carlson’s vision by creating an ethereal and edgy atmosphere in a tented space through the use of mirror components, projections and bit map technology. After dinner, the area will be transformed into the after party, “Selfie,” where guests will dance the night away.
