Art Ball 2015: A night to remember in Springville
The Springville Museum of Art’s annual Art Ball, themed “A White Glove Affair,” took to the gallery floors in May. Over 600 people attended the event, which featured dancing with instruction from award-winning Brigham Young University ballroom instructors set to music ranging from an 18th century minuet to contemporary country swing. The night even had a surprise marriage proposal.
Guests enjoyed the crowning of the museum’s Art Royalty, a tradition since 1907, and spent the night discovering the many treasures of the museum’s permanent collection and the 91st Annual Spring Salon by participating in a scavenger hunt.
The weather did not dampen the evening as guests enjoyed food and mocktails catered by Utah Celebrations and chocolate and caramel fountains by Chocolate Elations. They also took advantage of a beautiful photo opportunity outside under the new garden lighting. Make sure to mark May 14, 2016, on your calendars for next year’s Art Ball as it always proves to be a highlight of Utah’s cultural scene.
The ball was masterfully chaired by Jamie Snelson and was the result of the combined effort of the museum staff and amazing volunteers.
