Washington, DC (May 4, 2011) – The Women’s Committee of the Corcoran hosted the 56th annual Corcoran Ball, a spectacular event that is recognized in Washington’s social and business communities as the signature event of the spring social season.
The Corcoran welcomed more than 1,000 guests for a sensational evening of dinner, dancing, and socializing amidst spectacularly lavish decor, provided by Occasions Caterers. Guests traditionally include State, Federal, and City legislators and members of Washington’s diplomatic, business, and philanthropic communities.
The Corcoran Ball is a wonderful celebration with a purpose. Ball proceeds provide scholarships for the College; underwrite the Corcoran’s award-winning community outreach and education programs throughout the metropolitan area; and support the continuance of the Corcoran’s long tradition of bringing outstanding artists and their collections to the museum.
This From conservation efforts to technology updates, Youth and Family Programs to installation support for exciting exhibitions—the funds generated by the Ball serve not only the Corcoran, but the Community at large.
Right now, the Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design is hosting NEXT at the Corcoran: BFA Class of 2011, which is a dynamic, interactive, and innovative exhibition featuring the thesis work of the senior students in the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program at the Corcoran.
Admission to NEXT at the Corcoran is FREE from April 23–May 22.
