The 59th Annual Corcoran Ball will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014. This is the biggest fundraising event of the year for the 150-year-old Corcoran Gallery of Art and this year’s ball will benefit Corcoran Access, a project aimed at making over 17,000 works from the Corcoran’s renowned art collection digitally available in high-resolution to the public worldwide.

The black tie affair begins with cocktail hour at 7 PM, followed by a three-course seated dinner. Guests will also enjoy dancing and live music by The Ward Marston Dance Orchestra throughout the venue’s historic galleries.

At 10 PM, guests can head to Club Corcoran, the ball’s official speakeasy-style after party on the second floor. Enjoy a craft cocktail tasting by Iron Gate Restaurant spirits director Jeff Faile, wine choices from The Partisan wine director Brent Kroll, and craft beers selected by Greg Engert, the beer director for Bluejacket, a new local brewery. Music will be provided by DJ Neville C.
