The 2014 Speed Art Museum Ball will be held on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at The Gillespie.
For the first time in the Speed Art Museum's history, this year's Ball will honor an inspirational leader whose commitment and service to the arts community is unsurpassed, Reverend Alfred R. Shands III.
The Speed Art Museum Ball, held every year on the first Saturday in March, is the most significant fundraiser for the Speed and is critical for the current and future success of the Museum. Even though the Museum is closed during expansion, the Speed created a satellite space, Local Speed, that provides our community with art-related programs for children, families and adults. We continue to maintain the highest standards of stewardship and conservation of the Museum's collection, particularly works of art travelling across the nation for exhibitions. The generosity of attendees makes it possible for us to conserve multiple important works of art and lay the foundation for future programs that will be vital to our community.
Benefactor tickets for the gala event are $550 per person. The Benefactor evening begins at 6 p.m. and includes cocktails, dinner, dancing, and dessert. To purchase Benefactor tickets, or a table, please call the Museum at 502.637.6363.
Friends of the Speed tickets are $150 per person. The Friends of the Speed evening begins at 9 p.m. and includes cocktails, dancing, and dessert. Friends of the Speed tickets can be purchased online or by calling 502.637.6363.
Even if you can't attend the 2014 Speed Ball, you can make a tax-deductible donation here.
The Speed Ball is White Tie or Black Tie.
