Beaded Ball at the BMA


January 30, 2000|By Sloane Brown

Baubles, bangles and beads decorated the Baltimore Museum of Art, and the people in it, for the recent Beaded Ball. More than 1,200 art lovers converged for a preview party of "Kickin' It with the Old Masters," an exhibition by Baltimore artist Joyce J. Scott, a collaboration between the BMA and the Maryland Institute College of Art. The partyers feted Scott's fanciful beaded creations, and feasted on a buffet of finger foods.

"They have more [here] than just chips 'n stuff," said Joyce, enthusiastically. "I think [the party's] great."

Those having a ball included: Doreen Bolger, BMA director; Fred Lazarus, Maryland Institute president; Tony Deering, BMA board chair; Peggy Heller and Neil Meyerhoff, BMA trustees; Alice Greif and Fredye Wright Gross, Maryland Institute trustees; Isabel Klotz, Maryland Institute program sponsor; Joe Boccuzzi, president of Boccuzzi & Associates; George Ciscle, exhibition curator; Linda Joy Burke, board president of Baltimore Writers Alliance; Yvonne Hardy-Phillips, director of Towson University African-American Cultural Center; and Tom Miller, David Hess and Mark Barry, Baltimore-based artists.
