Contemporary was the theme as art intermingled with charity, which had supporters of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis going gaga at the Dada Ball. Performance artists with an avant-garde flair greeted those in attendance with a colorful mix of theatrics, while the guests were sometimes indistinguishable from the performers in their wonderful array of attire.

The Dada Ball is the biennial fund-raising gala for the museum, and the Contemporary has held three since its opening. Proceeds from the event provide support for the museum’s exhibitions and education programs.
