The 2016 Museum Ball

The vibrant and edgy art of our most recent exhibitions, Kenny Scharf and Glamorous Graffiti, were the inspiration for the 2016
Museum Ball. Each year, the Ball is the Museums major annual fundraiser, a beautiful, black-tie event that raises a major portion of the
annual budget and helps to support our ambitious schedule of exhibition and public and school programming. New for the 2016 Ball
was Late Cosmic Party, an afterparty just for young trendsetters.

An Evening of Glamorous Graffiti, the 2016 Ball was chaired by Museum Board President Angela Susan Anton, the publisher and
owner of Anton Community Publications. Angela and her committee carried through the Balls theme with pops of color and industrial
dcor objects throughout the dinner tent. Those pops of color also extended to the festive attire worn by many of the guests. The
Journal Committee was chaired by M. Patricia Janco-Tupper and Rebecca Creavin, both of Wells Fargo Bank. Congratulations to our
chairs, committee members and sponsors for a very successful and beautiful event.

Ball Committee members: Deborah A. Cannon, Gayle Finkelman-Cohen, Judie Chessin, Nasrin Mesbah, Angela Susan Anton,
