Art Ball


Saturday, April 23, 2016


Art+Architecture is the focus of the DMA Art Ball, to be held on Saturday, April 23, 2016. The 51st annual gala, chaired by Ann and David Sutherland and benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art, features a seated dinner, a luxury live auction, a silent auction, and a festive after party hosted by the Junior Associates. Art Ball attracts a high net worth audience, including some of Dallas's most notable philanthropists and the Museum's top patrons and trustees. Proceeds from Art Ball directly affect the DMA’s commitment to providing free access to its collection and to a wide range of exhibitions and educational and public programs.
