The 2015 Cummer Ball will be held April 25, 2015. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. with a contemporary edge and energy drawn from Rothko to Richter: Mark-Making in Abstract Painting from the Collection of Preston H. Haskell, Organized by the Princeton University Art Museum.
The Cummer Ball is the Museum’s flagship fundraiser, and the committee is planning an evening that promises to engage and inspire everyone! Artistic moments featuring music, dance, and live art-making will take place throughout the Museum and Gardens prior to an elegant seated dinner. The dinner will take place in various Galleries throughout the Museum. During dinner, guests will have an opportunity to learn about and support the Museum’s educational programs. Director Hope McMath and the Education team will present these special giving opportunities.
Mama Blue will be providing live music for the event. A graduate of Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and Jacksonville University, Mama Blue has been eloquently dubbed the “Sultry Sister of Soul.” Her gifted voice and stage presence are uplifting, unforgettable, and addictive! Her unique sound is reminiscent of legends such as Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Etta James, and Aretha Franklin and fuses elements of blues and jazz, with hints of Motown, classical, Latin, and even a bit of country.
