Each year the Architectural League’s Beaux Arts Ball brings together over a thousand architects, designers, artists, and their friends for a night of drinks, dancing, food, and fun, all to benefit the programs of the League.
The Ball is held in a different location each year and, since 2006, features a specially commissioned installation or environment by a team of architects, artists, and others.
