60th Beaux Arts Ball
The Tall Grass Beaux Arts Ball was held on March 11, 2017, at Ravisloe Country Club. More than 140 people gathered to have fun and raise funds for Tall Grass Arts Association. Using a new bidding process involving I-Phones, the Ball attendees bid on a large collection of two and three dimensional art by Tall Grass Artists, many huge baskets full of wonderful items, several hand-crafted quilts and lots more items. Sharon Bean served as Master of Ceremonies. Diana Cruz, Mary Dankowski and Therese Goodrich introduced the honoree, Janet Muchnik. In a presentation laced with humor, Janet described her history with Tall Grass and expressed her appreciation for the great honor. After dinner, the bar remained open all evening as people danced to the music of Joe Rojek,"Not-a-DJ".
The theme of the Ball was "Let them Eat Cake." As you can see from the photos below, the theme inspired many imaginative costumes.
