From the inclusion of the “+” in the theme — Art+Architecture — there was an early indication the Dallas Museum of Art‘s 2016 Art Ball was headed down a different path than years past. Instead of videos featuring DMA mainstays, Grammy-award winning entertainment and crowding the tent so Mark di Suvero‘s “Ave” sculpture felt claustrophobic, the black-tie DMA fundraiser on Saturday, April 23, somehow maintained the elegance and creativity of the night while Co-Chairs Ann and David Sutherland kept an eagle eye on raising funds.
Helping to achieve that were 450 of North Texas’ most glamorous types along with some of out-of-towners like entertainer Lance Bass, designer Adam Lippes and jewelry designer Bibi Van Der Velden.
And, of course, there were the always reliable boldface beauties…but you don’t want to just read about them. You want to see ’em. So, head on over to MySweetCharity Photo Gallery. But be forewarned. There are a lot of them. In fact, there are two pages of the “+” types.
