RAL Beaux Arts Ball Sept. 21 tops league's 75th anniversary celebrations
The Rehoboth Art League’s Beaux Arts Ball Saturday, Sept. 21, will be the grand event of the season of celebrating the art league's 75th anniversary.
The Beaux Arts Ball, a signature event for the Rehoboth Art League since its inception in the late 1930s, will be a dressy affair with guests encouraged to wear costumes or creative hats and/or masks.
Costumed guests will vie for a chance to win one of three prizes for outstanding attire. Judging will be done in secret, and awards will be given in the following three categories: Best Creative Costume for an Individual, Best Creative Costume for a Couple, and Best Creative Costume for a Table. The judges will evaluate designs based upon creativity and technical merit with association to the theme, It’s All About Art.
Guests will arrive at Beacon Middle School to park their cars. They will enjoy a string band and red carpet treatment before being whisked off to the ball at the Belle Mead Farm. This is a unique, exciting venue, opened only for this occasion.
Signature cocktails will be served by Dogfish Head while guests view the Living Art, live models painted as Ganesh, lions, an octopus and other characters. Nage, a(MUSE.) and Blue Moon will serve a gourmet dinner. Clear Space Theatre will entertain with some Broadway show tunes, followed by dancing to the 10-piece band Remedy.
Tickets are $200 per person, all inclusive. The proceeds from the Beaux Arts Ball will support the art league’s education and outreach activities. Through these programs, the art league provides free year-round art instruction in eight locations to underserved kids. In addition, the league works with other community agencies and local schools to offer free art experiences to youth and adults, including the Young at Art program. Other groups served by the programs are seniors and those with mental disabilities.
Tickets are available at rehobothartleague.org, at the Rehoboth Art League, 12 Dodds Lane, Rehoboth Beach or by calling 302-227-8408. For up-to-date information on the Beaux Arts Ball, follow on Facebook at Beaux Arts Ball - Rehoboth Art League.
