Art Ball 2015: A night to re­mem­ber in Springville

Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION - By Nathan McDon­ald

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.
