The Board of Trustees of the Newport Art Museum invite you to attend our annual Beaux Arts Ball, a gala fundraiser in celebration and support of the Museum’s mission to connect art and community. Proceeds from the Beaux Arts Ball provide vital support for the Museum’s operations, public programs, and exhibitions.

Join event co-chairs Kristen Coates, Molly de Ramel, and Elizabeth Ann Kahane for a festive evening honoring the Benson Family: John, Richard, Christopher, Nicholas, Oliver and Samuel Benson and the late John Howard and Esther Fisher Benson and Thomas Benson.

Reservations start at $350 per person for the entire evening. Seating for dinner is limited.

For night-owls who want to join the fun just for after-dinner drinks and dancing at 9:30, tickets are $125 per person.
