Fresh Arts annual Gala

Fresh Arts annual Gala

Fresh Arts annual GALA

Each year, Fresh Arts hosts one of the wildest and most beloved shindigs in town! 

Complete with zany costumes, live entertainment, dancing, an art auction, and light dinner and drinks, Fresh Arts’ fetes are always memorable! Whether celebrating shamed celebrities (The Black Ball) or runaway brides (The Ball n’ Chain) or spaced invaders (The Space Ball) or Willy Wonka (The Gum Ball), Fresh Arts’ creative fundraisers never fail to “wow” our guests! 

Most importantly, the annual gala is Fresh Arts’ biggest fundraiser each year, raising between 15-20% of the organization’s revenue. These funds make it possible for Fresh Arts to fulfill its mission of strengthening the sustainability and vibrancy of Houston’s arts sector by bolstering the capacity and professional practice of artists and arts organizations and enhancing the public’s engagement with the arts.
