Saturday, Aug 27, 2016

The Springfield Museum of Art’s Annual ArtBall gala is an end-of-summer black-tie event. It’s a Good Year for a fine wine uncorked, a keg of local brew previously untapped, and for unparalleled art experiences at the Museum. The 47th Annual ArtBall features Ohio wines, and beer from Springfield’s own Mother Stewart’s Brewing Company, our first since Prohibition.
Dinner is served followed by great dancing music from the band, Laika.
