According to Art Ball 2018 Chairman Rebecca Enloe Fletcher,
“We recently announced Art Ball 2018, themed ‘Horizon – Now. New. Next,’ will be held Saturday, April 21, at the Dallas Museum of Art. Proceeds from the 53rd annual Art Ball will directly affect the DMA’s ongoing commitment to providing free access to its world-renowned collection, as well as various exhibitions and educational programs throughout the year.
“’Art Ball 2018: Horizon – Now. New. Next’ will be a fresh, inventive take on this celebrated evening full of contemporary color and artistic surprises. We will recognize a new chapter in the Museum’s history, both celebrating our current accomplishments as well as looking toward the future.
“We hope you will consider joining us for an unforgettable evening of dinner and dancing that will provide vital support to our museum. With assistance from Todd Fiscus of Todd Events, the event will feature modern, contemporary décor with a sculptural feel. Cascading color from the ceiling will mimic the vibrant horizon and will be reflected throughout in the mirrored décor. Guests will be welcomed into an elegant, seated dinner catered by Cassandra Fine Catering, and an after party for Art Ball Patrons will follow the dinner and live auction.
“Proceeds from The Art Ball directly benefit the DMA’s programs, special exhibitions and collections. The DMA’s global collection of more than 24,000 works is nationally regarded and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures. Its programs are among the most innovative and robust in reaching new audiences. The DMA anchors the Dallas Arts District, and over the past fiscal year was visited by more than 800,000 people. Over the past 20 years, the DMA’s Art Ball has raised more than $28 million to support the Museum’s mission of engaging and educating the community through art. Last year’s event raised $1.3 million in net revenue, and the 2018 gala is expected to continue the strong tradition of giving, which has greatly benefited the Museum and its visitors for more than 50 years.
