SFMOMA The Modern Ball

The atmosphere.

The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) hosted The Modern Ball, the Museum's largest gala fund-raiser on May 2.

The multifaceted gala began with two concurrent events: The Gala Dinner, a five-star meal with a live auction and entertainment, and The Supper Club, a hip and stylish lounge that featured dinner and more live music. Guests converged with additional late-night revelers at The Post-Modern Party, a Museum-wide after-party featuring live and DJ entertainment. The evening's entertainment lineup included performers such as Salvador Santana, Larry “T-Byrd” Gordon, and local indie-rock band Scissors for Lefty.

The chair of the Modern Ball was Elaine McKeon. Honorary chairs were Helen and Charles Schwab.
