Friday, April 20, 2012 from 7 p.m. until midnight.
This year, guests will join Honorary Patron His Excellency Francois Delattre Ambassador of France to the United States and Madame Delattre, along with Honorary Chair and internationally acclaimed artist Sam Gilliam, a past Corcoran College of Art + Design faculty member and advocate for arts education in Washington, D.C., and beyond. Additionally, a select number of tickets to Club Corcoran – an exclusive after-dinner opportunity to experience the grandeur of the Corcoran Ball at a lower price-point – will be offered from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. A highlight in Washington’s spring social calendar, the black-tie benefit features uniquely decorated formal dining rooms in the Corcoran’s historic galleries; a lavish, three-course seated dinner; and a festive evening of music and dancing.
Proceeds from the 57th Annual Corcoran Ball benefit the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design’s institutional programs and activities, including special exhibitions, scholarships for students, educational outreach, and more.
