The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) hosted Art Ball 2016: Art + Architecture with more than 400 guests on Saturday, April 23, 2016, at the Dallas Museum of Art. Ann and David Sutherland served as this year’s Art Ball Co-chairs. Guests arrived to a red architectural display of the Dallas skyline and an oversized blueprint of the DMA that served as a step and repeat. During the cocktail hour, guests sipped on mixology cocktails while they bid on an eclectic mix of experiences, art and gorgeous decorative items curated by Silent Auction Chair, Gonzalo Bueno. Top bidding was on Nicolas Alquin’s Diapason sculpture, featuring old oak with burned patina and lime, and a Presidential Live Oak, grown at the prestigious ranch of President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush in Crawford, Texas. At 7:45 p.m., a 30-foot tall curtain dramatically opened revealing another Todd Events masterpiece of contemporary reds, greens, and yellows. Sprays of yellow florals, moss drenched chandeliers, and oversized head tables in the shape of a plus sign tied the room into a sensory wonderland.
Following dinner, After Party Co-chairs Rachel and Michael Osburn welcomed guests to the Hamon Atrium and Eagle Family Plaza for Folly at the Art Ball, sponsored by Stanley Korshak and presented by the DMA Junior Associates. DJ Lucy Wrubel and Georgia Bridgwater Orchestra provided music while guests danced and mingled. Guests included: Co-chairs Ann and David Sutherland, Dallas Museum of Art Interim Director Walter Elcock, Micki and Mayor Mike Rawlings, Nancy and Richard Rogers, Jennifer and John Eagle, Dallas Museum of Art President Catherine Marcus Rose, Will Rose, Brian Bolke, Nancy Rogers, Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, Elaine and Neils Agather, Andy Beal, Olya Sinitsyna, Deedie Rose, Peggy and Carl Sewell, Margaret McDermott, Jennifer and John Eagle, Allen and Kelli Questrom, Lance Bass, Candice and Tony Romo, and After Party Co-chairs Rachel and Michael Osburn.
