The 2016 Art Ball took place on Saturday, June 11. This black tie gala, presented by Morgan Stanley, was the culmination of months of hard work by The DAI's Associate Board.
This year’s Art Ball theme, Off the Wall, was inspired by a pair of larger-than-life lithographs, by artist Robert Longo, from his series Men in the Cities. Art Ball Chairs Darrell Bickley and Darren McGarvey shared why they selected this work and their vision for the evening: “We love contemporary art and especially works in black and white. As soon as we saw the two lithographs by Robert Longo, we felt their energy and were moved with a vision for something powerful, impactful, and different for Art Ball this year.”
