Program Description

The Museum of Arts and Design is holding its fourth annual young patron's gala, the L.E.D. BALL, on Thursday, May 17th! Co-hosted by both celebrities and star fixtures in the design world, like Dror Benshetrit and Nate Berkus, this festive fundraiser expects over 1,000 partygoers during the course of the evening enjoying a-list dj sets, cocktails and dancing, and a live musical performance. The Museum itself will be lit up with a video artwork projected onto its façade and jam-packed with designs in L.E.D lighting inside. ALL PROCEEDS, including ticket sales and sustainable artworks for auction incorporating light-emitting diodes by over thirty top designers, will benefit the Museum's educational programming for children
