Dance at the Speed Art Museum Ball February 28
If you like great art and great causes, you’ll love the Speed Art Museum Ball. The Museum is scheduled to reopen next year, but there’s plenty of reason to celebrate right now. The ball will look back at the long history of the museum, and look forward to the exciting future that’s in store for this well-known Louisville attraction.
Speeding Toward the Future
The museum ball is one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for the Speed Art Museum, and you can help support the cause. Of course, you’ll have plenty of fun doing it. The medallion Ballroom will offer live music from Burning Las Vegas Band. This is a 9-piece band that plays all types of music. You’ll hear a little funk, some soul, rock and roll, and just about everything in-between. Go to the Rathskeller to hear DJ Sleepy T, who will be spinning all the popular hits.
The event begins at 9 pm with cocktails. Have some dessert later in the evening, after you work up an appetite on the dance floor. Tickets cost $150, but the price includes everything and the proceeds will be used to support the museum. It’s a fancy ball, so everyone will be in white or black tie.
The Speed Art Museum Ball is at the famous Seelbach at 500 S. 4th Street, just blocks away from one of Louisville’s most famous attractions: Old Louisville.
The Older Part of Town
Old Louisville is more than an historic district and a famous city attraction: it’s a neighborhood. The community here maintains a vibrant spirit of togetherness. There are many neighborhood events held here through the year, because the community feels a sense of pride in this beautiful part of the city. Simply walking through Old Louisville is like going to an architecture museum. There’s a large concentration of Victorian homes here.
The beautiful homes, trendy apartments and community events draw residents to Old Louisville all year long. The Speed Art Museum is located in Old Louisville, along with the U of L Photographic Archives and several other museums. The library is located in this neighborhood as well.
Take a closer look at Old Louisville, and see what you may have been missing. You’ll have the chance to see it all for yourself on your way to the Speed Art Museum Ball.
