2017 Another Great Night Under the Palms
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 | 7PM
Celebrating over 25 years of art and elegance, Another Great Night in November is a unique femme fête full of stunning art, healthy competition, and Houston's most spectacular women. This girls-only soirée deemed by PaperCity as, "one of the season’s most elegant affairs," has garnered an enthusiastic following of Houston's finest ladies and contemporary art lovers.
CAMH trustee and AGN legacy Leslie Ballard Hull invites us into her home for 2017's Another Great Night Under the Palms to celebrate an evening that harkens back to the splednor and decadence of the vintage country club lifestyle. The decor vision, designed and generously donated by Rebekah Johnson of Bergner and Johnson, is reminiscent of the interior stylings of famed decorator Dorothy Draper and seeks to provide guests with a blast from the past with a modern twist.
The evening includes our popular cocktail hour quiz, touring Leslie's incredible contemporary art and antique collection, as well as an elegant seated dinner by City Kitchen, and prizes generously provided by our retail sponsor.
All proceeds from the event benefit CAMH’s exhibitions and programming. Your underwriting support ensures that CAMH can continue its legacy of providing visitors with access to today’s most innovative art and artists, always with free admission.
