Art Ball 2023: Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler

Saturday, February 25, 2023  •  6:30 PM  •  AMA Future Home, 140 W. Broad Ave. 

After a successful debut in 2022 as the venue for Art Ball, the Albany Museum of Art’s signature annual celebration of art and the community, returned to the museum’s future home in downtown Albany on Saturday, Feb 25, for Art Ball: Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler.

Albany Motorcars Mercedes-Benze and BMW of Albany were presenting sponsors. Watson Spence was Bar Sponsor, and Upalnd Wealth Advisors was Paddle Sponsor. Privileged Sponsors were Invision Technologies, Phoebe, U Save It Pharmacy, and The Weeks Group.

Co-Chairs for Art Ball 2023 were Jenna McLaurin and Jill King. With the New Orleans-inspired theme Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler, presented an elegant, black-tie-optional gala with cocktails, a gourmet meal, dancing to live musical entertainment by The Grapevine Band, and live and silent auctions.

While a celebration, Art Ball plays an indispensable role for the Albany Museum of Art as the museum’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Art Ball not only raises awareness about the AMA and its important work in the community, the event raises vital funding that supports free admission for everyone, world-class traveling exhibitions, educational programming, art camps (including scholarships to reach more areas of the community), and more.
