Tequesta, Fla. (Feb. 10, 2014) — The Lighthouse ArtCenter invites you to “Rocket to 1964” as it celebrates its 50th annual Beaux Arts Ball.
The ball, set for Saturday, March 8, at The Country Club at Mirasol, will look back to the time ArtCenter was founded.
“It was a such a pivotal time in our nation’s history. This event gives us a chance to honor the past and embrace the future.” said Katie Deits, executive director of the Tequesta museum and art school.
Guests can immerse themselves in 1964 American popular culture, dance to Motown music by the popular band Memory Lane, and look back to the Mod and miniskirt fashions, American muscle cars and the space race.
“It’s funny how what was popular then is popular now,” Ms. Deits said, citing the current resurgence of art and fashion from that period.
This year’s ball, chaired by Sam and Jill Plummer, will highlight those themes.
The Plummers are receiving assistance from a ball committee that includes Michael Andersen, Gerri Aurre, Carolyn Austin, Susan Bardin, Evelyne Bates, Julie Silk Beaumont, Kristin Blackmon, Pat Crowley, Judy DiEdwardo, Judy Flescher, Peter Golding, Esther Gordon, Denise LeClair-Robbins, Susan Nastri, Rosalie Roush, Frankie Spellman, Mary Sunshine, Theresa Wood and Curt Fonger.
Sponsors include Mr. and Mrs. George W. Bovenizer III, The Shepherd Foundation, Publix Super Markets Charities Inc., DEX Imaging, Florida Power & Light Company and Florida Weekly.
