Miami Art Museum Ball

Miami Art Museum BallSaturday, December 8,  7–11pm – Miami Art Museum, 101 West Flagler Street, Miami

The 2012 Miami Art Museum Ball, Saturday, December 8, 2012, will commemorate the Museum’s 29 historical years at Miami-Dade Cultural Center in anticipation of next year’s move to Museum Park. In December 2013, the Museum will reopen as Pérez Art Museum Miami in a new Herzog & de Meuron-designed facility alongside Biscayne Bay. The 2012 MAM Ball chairs are Patricia Papper, Patricia and William Kleh, and Marcella and Daniel Novela. Dinner will be served in the upper-level gallery featuring a menu inspired by the waterfront bistro at the Museum’s new facility. The gallery will be transformed into an environment created by New Work Miami 2013 artist Emmett Moore, known for his innovative experimentation between the fields of art and design. Following dinner, guests will dance the night away under the stars on the magically-transformed outdoor plaza as Crash the Ball attendees join the party. Brooklyn, NY-based duo Tanlines will DJ, and guests will enjoy a sea of signature desserts created by James Beard-nominated pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith. Held annually since 1983, the MAM Ball caps off Art Basel Miami Beach and is attended by art collectors, artists and cultural leaders both locally and internationally. The MAM Ball is the Museum’s main annual fundraiser. Proceeds from the event sustain the Museum’s exhibition and education programs. Tickets start at $1,000. Tables range from $10,000 to $25,000.
