The Modern Ball 2018

Wednesday, April 25, 2018
5:30 p.m.–1 a.m.

Come together. Make an impact. Have a ball.

The Modern Ball, our dynamic biennial fundraiser, offers the opportunity to make a dramatic impact while partying at the biggest event of the year. Since our expanded museum opened in May 2016, our community’s generosity and energy has enabled us to go deeper into our collection and farther out into the community. With your support, we can extend our impact even more.

One night. Three ways to have a ball.

  • The Gala Dinner — Be a part of our signature celebration, with a chic cocktail hour, festive feast, and thrilling live auction.
  • The Supper Club — Mix and mingle in an intimate lounge filled with ample eats, artful drinks, and bouncin’ beats.
  • The Post-Modern Party — Come together for a heart-pounding night of music, dance, and food, plus a can’t-miss headline performance by Little Dragon.

Your support makes our groundbreaking exhibitions and education programs possible.

All Modern Ball guests must be 21 and older. Valid photo ID required.
