Le Grand Bal brings finer things to Lamar University

2018 Le Grand Bal honoree Albert Nolen

It’s a gala evening of art, fine dining, dancing and entertainment at Lamar University’s 42nd annual Le Grand Bal on Saturday, March 24, titled “We ART LU.”

Guests are encouraged to dress in black tie or Asian inspired attire. Activities include an art gallery auction at the Dishman Art Museum, as well as cocktails, appetizers and dinner in the beautifully renovated Setzer Student Center, followed by an after party with entertainment by Doppelganger, one of Houston’s premier party bands.

The silent auction and reception at the Dishman Art Museum will be held from 6:30 p.m-8 p.m. Guests will have the opportunity to bid on more than 200 pieces of original artwork representing a diverse array of original paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, ceramics and jewelry by alumni, faculty, students and special friends of LU. The event will continue on to midnight.

Tickets are $250 per person and can be purchased online at www.lamar.edu/legrandbal or by calling (409) 880-8137. Artwork will also be available for online.

This is the major annual fundraiser for the College of Fine Arts and Communication.
