F or once, I am at a loss for words. The recent incarnation of the Dallas Museum of Art's signature fundraiser, Art Ball, was beyond description. Okay, I'll throw out a few words: grand, soigné, saturnalian, elegant, unabashed, sprawling, ambitious … and perhaps most importantly, fun. It was like a casual gathering for old friends to carouse a little while raising funds for a great cause: the DMA's care and preservation of its world-class collection, while offering engaging access to art. And it was fun because there were no remarks or speeches that night. I get it: A gala usually has a podium with a group of leaders and donors lined up to share their thoughts. But for Art Ball, we all knew why we were there and what we were supporting. Bolke's BALL ART BALL, THE DALLAS M U S E U M O F A RT ' S SIGNATURE EVENING, WAS THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING.
