    The Corporator Council and Event Chair James Hogan are pleased to announce Corporators Ball 2017: Heavenly, the Worcester Art Museum’s third annual gala fundraiser in celebration and support of the Museum’s mission to connect art and community. Proceeds from the Corporators Ball provide vital support for WAM’s operations, public programs, and exhibitions, which engaged over 120,000 visitors last year.

    Join 300 of our region’s most prominent and influential business leaders, art enthusiasts, and philanthropists for a divine evening inspired by WAM's exhibition Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection. Highlights will include a champagne welcome, a menu fit for the gods prepared by Peppers Artful Events, a unique and finely-curated silent auction, and a premier live auction led by Robin Starr, Director of American and European Works of Art at Skinner Auctioneers.

    Beginning at 9pm, enjoy the Divine Madness dance party featuring live music by Boston band One Step Ahead, indulgent desserts courtesy of Sweet Kitchen & Bar, affirmational readings with Julie Pepper and her Fountain of Trabazon oracle deck, Highest Heaven exhibition viewing, and other heavenly delights throughout the Museum.

    Reservations start at $250 per person for the entire evening (6-11pm) and $50 for the Divine Madness dance party only (9-11pm). Seating for dinner is limited. Reservations are all-inclusive.

    Celestial dress is encouraged; bring your halo—or horns! Please use the Salisbury Street Entrance. Complimentary valet parking available.
