The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art – Art Deco Ball

The Art Deco Ball was held on November 12th at The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. The Chairman’s Circle Gala celebrated the exhibition, American Art Deco: Designing for the People, 1918-1939. Hosted by the board of trustees, the festivities included cocktails, a gourmet dinner, entertainment, and the thrill of the exhibition itself. The co-chairs were Evelyn Craft Belger and Dick Belger and Nancy and Rick Green.

Partygoers danced the night away.
