Since The Architectural League revived the event in 1990, the Beaux Arts Ball has become a highlight of New York’s design calendar with over 1,200 architects, designers, artists, and their friends attending. The League holds the event in venues of architectural interest and commissions installations or performances by architects and artists to create a unique environment for party-goers. A dinner for benefactors and sponsors precedes the event.

Sites for the Beaux Arts Ball have ranged from the Seagram Building in midtown Manhattan to the Brooklyn Army Terminal in Sunset Park. The 2023 Ball will be held in the Navy Yard in Brooklyn.

Sponsorship & Tickets

Individual tickets start at $100 for the Beaux Arts Ball party and $500 for the preceding Benefactors Dinner.

Sponsors join members of the design community in supporting The Architectural League, thereby signaling their commitment to design excellence, innovation, and intellectual vitality.
