The Art Academy of Cincinnati
(AAC) is honoring its students, faculty, donors and supporters at its Beaux Arts Ball
on Friday, Oct. 23 at the Verdin Bell Event Centre in Pendleton.
The event will celebrate the 10th anniversary of AAC's move
from its longtime home base adjacent to the Cincinnati Art Museum in Eden Park to a 112,000-square-foot campus in Over-the-Rhine.
The masquerade party will focus on a central Venice theme, featuring gondolas and masks hand-crafted by AAC students and will feature performances by bands Burning Caravan
and Groove Session
. Key supporters who helped AAC move its campus in 2005 will be honored at the ball.
“Part of what makes this so special is the people who made it possible to move into our building 10 years ago,” says AAC Vice President of Institutional Advancement Joan Kaup. “We want to publicly and properly thank several of them who either invested financially or helped us making strong connections so that AAC could become an anchor in this creative community.”
