The Birmingham Museum of Art is pleased to announce the co-chairs for the 2019 Museum Ball: Lindsey and John Lacey and Courtney and Bryson Stephens. As long-standing supporters of the Museum and the arts in Birmingham, the Laceys and the Stephens are sure to create an evening to remember.
The 63rd Museum Ball: Pop in the City will be held Saturday, May 4, 2019. This year’s ball promises to once again be an unforgettable evening of dinner and dancing, surrounded by the Museum’s renowned collection. Guests will be entertained among transformed Museum spaces inspired by the bold imagery and colors of the pop art movement.
The co-chairs began fundraising efforts in the fall of 2018, with a keen focus on expanding support that benefits education programs. As the Museum’s sole fundraising event, support from the annual ball directly impacts families across our Birmingham community by providing critical resources for the BMA’s Education department. Education is central to the mission of the BMA and funds raised from the ball allow us to serve students, educators, and parents through a variety of programs and initiatives that increase access to the arts, encourage arts integration, and provide meaningful art-related experiences for students in grades K-12.
When asked what excites them most about the event, the city’s longest-running event fundraiser, the co-chairs remarked, “Where else can you sit among incredible artwork and have a beautiful dinner followed by dancing among the stars? There aren’t any other places in Birmingham like it.”
Further, they hope to cultivate greater generational interest in the Museum and are supporting the ball to encourage a new generation of art lovers. And, of course, having fun while they do it.
