Beaux Arts Ball 2019: WAVE

A benefit for the programs of The Architectural League of New York.

September 27, 2019
9:00 p.m.

We thank everyone who joined us for the 2019 Beaux Arts Ball. Click here to see pictures from the evening and thank you to everyone who generously supported the event.

First Wave, Nouvelle Vague, Third Wave, Next Wave, New Wave, No Wave. Waves have long been used as metaphors for movements and cohorts that mark moments in culture. The Architectural League’s Beaux Arts Ball 2019: WAVE celebrated these generative and transformative forces of waves. Continuing our multiyear residency exploring the Brooklyn Navy Yard, the 2019 Ball took place at Shed 269, a vast former submarine assembly building, currently part of Agger Fish Corp. 

Greg Corso and Molly Hunker of SPORTS, along with lighting designer Ken Farmer of Wild Dogs International, created an original, immersive environment in response to the year’s theme.
