The DAI's annual Art Ball is Dayton's premier black tie gala.

Art Ball at Dayton Art Institute

For 66 years, Art Ball has been the Miami Valley’s premier social event. This annual black-tie is attended by more than 600 community and corporate leaders, top museum supporters and community patrons. This year’s theme is Magic is The Moonlight and the evening begins with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by an elegant sit-down dinner (provided by Kohler Catering) enjoyed throughout the museum. After dinner, Art Ball patrons may enjoy live music, dancing, and the ability to take advantage of some of the museum’s most special places: The Hale Cloister and The Museum Rotunda, as well as The Moonlight Lounge, which has a spectacular view of downtown Dayton. Throughout the evening, open bars are available, along with specialty martini and bourbon bars. The Art Ball audience is comprised of guests via corporate memberships (Jefferson Patterson Society), event sponsors and individual ticket purchasers & table buyers.
Reservations are required for Art Ball and attendance is limited. Tickets may be purchased online at the link below. For more information about tickets or sponsorship opportunities, please contact Interim Marketing Director Mike Griest, at
