This year’s Art Ball, held this past Saturday, marks the 50th occurrence of the event, which started as the Beaux Arts Ball in 1962. Each Ball usually has a theme, with invitations to match. Below are a few of my favorites from the 1960s and 70s, when the Museum was located in Fair Park.
These and a few other favorites are currently on view in the Mayer Library, located on the DMA’s M2 level and included in free general admission.
