The 5th Gala Preview Party was elegant and fun. It was a grand occasion to meet and network with people from throughout the design community including designers, curators, dealers, builders, developers, architects, preservationists, collectors, artists, alumni, staff, faculty, students and others that comprise the extended BAC community.
Delicious food and wine, music, and an array modern to contemporary fine art, photography, jewelry, furniture, glass, ceramics, sculpture, fine prints, drawings and more made the evening into a grand event, a compelling marketplace, and a celebration of excellence; it was like a noisy and welcoming "neighborhood" gathering of designers and builders and colleagues and friends.
The evening continues to be a significant event for the College to gather its friends and raise funds to continue its good work of educating the finest design professionals of tomorrow. The BAC thanks our generous donors and friends.
