The Bass Ball and its upbeat after-party will be an elegant gala celebration in support of the exhibitions and programs of the Bass Museum of Art.
Chaired by Criselda Breene, Diane Lieberman, Soledad Picón, Tui Pranich and Ines Rivero, the evening will be attended by Miami’s most distinguished cultural and civic leaders who will come together to honor the important role the Bass plays in the creative life of this community.
An imaginative setting will be created in Collins Park just for this event. In addition to enjoying delicious food, cocktails, champagne and dancing, guests will have the opportunity to bid on important works of art in a silent auction powered by Paddle 8 throughout the evening. The highlight of The Bass Ball will be the world premiere of a new work by Athi-Patra Ruga, the South African performance artist who has captivated the imagination of the art world.
The Bass Ball will be a two-tiered evening. Ball patrons will enjoy cocktails, a seated dinner, the performance and first dibs on the silent auction. Partygoers will then “keep The Ball rolling,” at 9 p.m. with a dance party and more surprise entertainment. “Keep the Ball Rolling” is chaired by Malena Assing, Clara Bullrich, Nathan Lieberman, John Lin, Adriana Vergara and Alexa Wolman.
Attire for the evening is Whimsical Black Tie – surrealist, fantastic, glam, mercurial, protean, fanciful. Prizes will be awarded to the Most Creative, Most Outlandish, Best Couple and Most Elegant.
Tickets to The Bass Ball are $1000 and may be purchased by emailing BassBall@BassMuseum.org. Tickets to Keep The Ball Rolling are $125 and are available through Event.BassMuseum.org.
