Having a Ball

The 66th Annual Beaux Arts Costume Ball for the Lowe

December 2018

Nearly all 225 guests who attended the annual Beaux Arts Ball wore elaborate costumes to commemorate the theme of “Miami – the Magic City.” Each year the costume ball is held by the Beaux Arts organization to benefit the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum and arts education. The winning costume award went to Christo’s “Surrounded Islands” created by Coco and Venny Torre, who took home first prize, while the annual skit competition was won by the “Miami Hurricanes,” created by Mandy MacMullan Greenan and husband Tyler, featuring weather forecaster ‘Stormy Daniels.’ The ball was held in early November, under a huge clear tent at the Biscayne Bay Yacht Club in Coconut Grove. The evening program was introduced by current Beaux Arts President Aubrie Page Andrea, who introduced Dr. Jill Deupi, the Beaux Arts Director and Chief Curator of the University of Miami Lowe Art Museum.
