Future Now - Beaux Arts Ball 2019


To celebrate an exciting and highly successful 150th anniversary year, the Art Academy of Cincinnati’s (AAC) Alumni Association is reviving its popular Beaux Arts Ball. The costume gala is known for its unique and sometimes wild designs. This year’s theme is the Future Now Ball and will take place Saturday, November 2, from 7 PM—12 AM.

Prepare to step into the future! Event details:

Our evening Android of Ceremonies, Crystal Tubes (Class of 2017), will lead you through this futuristic voyage including palm readers, space-age belly dancers, and collaborative sensory installation.
