WHAT IS THE BEAUX ARTS BALL?

An annual event originally conceived by the Ringling School of Art (now Ringling College of Art and Design). Held during the 1940’s - 1970’s in Sarasota, the event defined a period when the visual arts and artists were at the center of the city’s social life. The themes drew audiences up to 1,000 people who came in costume.

 

In 1947, the Art Association (now known as Art Center Sarasota) began hosting the Beaux Arts Ball. This event became the most colorful event of the winter season. It was held at the John Ringling Hotel and later at the Municipal Auditorium with participants putting great planning into and wearing extremely elaborate costumes.

WHAT IS ICONCEPT?

Iconcept was conceived to showcase artists in the community as well as raising funds to support Art Center Sarasota. Artists and designers are challenged each year to use their imagination and problem solving skills to create “fabric” from unconventional materials not commonly associated with clothing design. The results are constructed into avant garde ensembles for a unique and highly anticipated runway show.

Each year since it’s inception, the audience is anxious to see what the designers have come up with this time. They cheer on the models whose personalities entertain the audience as they walk the stage.

This year, the guests will have more interaction with the artists and their models, enabling them to see the incredible, time consuming work that is done on each outfit.
