Albany Museum of Art's Art Ball 2023

The Albany Museum of Art’s Art Ball 2023 is back and better than ever, with a New Orleans flair this year. If you are ready to “laissez les bons temps rouler,” now is the time to make your plans for this black-tie event on February 25th.

Art Ball 2023

The Albany Museum of Art’s Art Ball 2023 will be held in the “industrial chic” setting of its future home in downtown.

Presented by Albany Motorcars and BMW of Albany, Art Ball: Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler is on track to let the good times roll during its annual—and biggest—fundraiser.

This year’s Art Ball will be an elegant, black-tie-optional gala. There will be a gourmet meal, craft cocktails, live music, and both silent and live auctions.

Musical guests are The Grapevine Band, courtesy of the stage sponsor, WALB-TV. According to the band’s website, they are the Southeast’s “premier party band.” They play a broad range of music that’s perfect for any occasion. Their music features horns, drums, guitars, keyboards, percussionists and big vocals!

So, put on your finest evening wear and dancing shoes for a night to remember at this year’s Art Ball. The funds raised during this community event support initiatives such as free admission to the museum, visiting world-class exhibits, educational programming, art camps and more.

Make your way to 140 West Broad Ave., the former Belk building, for an enchanted evening.
