There’s something magical and incredibly surreal about a seated dinner in the hallowed galleries at the Walters Art Museum. On Saturday, October 21, the Walters hosted its annual fundraising gala and opened its doors to some of Baltimore’s best-dressed arts patrons and creatives. The evening began with cocktail hour at six in the sculpture court, a three-course dinner in the galleries at seven-thirty, followed by a late night dance party from 9-12, complete with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar, DJ (but not DJ Fly Guy), and specialty lounge spaces.

Although the emphasis is on fun, food, and fashion, the funds raised from the event go toward the Walters’ collections and programming, supporting free access to exhibitions and galleries, virtual resources, and public programs. If you want to attend next year, start planning your outfit and put it on your calendar now. And if you simply wish to get dressed and dance, you can choose to just attend the after-party at an accessible ticket price.
