PNC logo

 Nature's CanvasThe 2015 Art Ball takes place on Saturday, June 13! This black tie gala, presented by PNC, is the culmination of hard work from the Associate Board, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Art Ball Chairs Stephanie and Bob Davis selected Ernest Lawson’s painting Through the Aspens as the inspiration for this elegant evening.

Art Ball begins at 7:00 p.m. with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, followed by an elegant seated dinner in the museum galleries. Following dinner, guests will enjoy live music, dancing, open bars, specialty martinis, cigars, liqueurs, and much more.

VIP COCKTAIL RECEPTION
The VIP Cocktail Hour returns this year, offering early entry to the event for a private reception, with high-end wines and hors d’oeuvres. Space is limited for the VIP Cocktail Hour – make your reservations early!

GRAND DRAW RAFFLE
Art Ball is a major fundraising event for the museum, and a key to that effort is the Grand Draw Raffle.  Only 600 tickets are sold for $100 each, with the chance to win one of 100 fabulous prize packages, which include high-end jewelry, travel, dining, entertainment, and much more. Ticket holders need not be present at Art Ball to win.
