The Modern Ball Save the Date: April 25, 2012. Tickets are available for San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s Modern Ball, the Bay Area’s biggest art bash of the year! Event designer Stanlee Gatti promises to transform the museum into an ultra-chic party with surprises around every corner, and a wink to the masterpieces in the collection.

The Modern Ball committee chairwoman Dolly Chammas is leading the organization of three parties in one evening: The Gala Dinner (sold out), which includes a five-star dinner by chef Hubert Keller and an art auction; The Supper Club, a lounge with culinary stations and dance music from DJ Vin Sol, and The Post-Modern Party, a late-night museum-wide fete featuring DJ Chromeo.
