Special Event

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 — Experience dining at a whole new level with our thrilling live auction and sumptuous feast.
  • The Supper Club— Revel in an intimate lounge experience filled with ample eats, artful drinks, and festive jams.
  • The Post-Modern Party — Come together for a heart-pounding night of music, dance, and food, plus a can’t-miss headline performance.

Your support makes our groundbreaking exhibitions and education programs possible.

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