Thursday, November 3, 2022


The Art Museum of South Texas invites you to join us Thursday, November 3, 2022 for ARTball: Avant-Gold. This golden celebration, commemorating 50 years in the Philip Johnson-designed Singer Building, will honor the Avant-Garde—the innovative, pioneering, and forward-thinking ideas that make art exceptional, unique, and challenging.

For Sponsors and VIP guests, the experience includes a private Gilded Feast followed by ARTball: Avant-Gold.

6:00 PM The Gilded Feast (Sponsors & VIP Ticket-Holders ONLY): A private, sponsors-only affair held in the Upper Gallery, where sponsors and their guests will enjoy a golden plated dinner before ARTball begins. Sponsorships provide a limited number of reserved seats through VIP tickets. 

7:30 PM ARTball: Avant-Gold (All Ticket-Holders): AMST’s golden 50th Anniversary celebration beholds a night of gilded goodies and artistic amusement. This avant-garde affair will have entertainment by The Royal Dukes Band, hors d’oeuvres by Waterstreet Catering, and creative delights.

  • VIP TICKETS: $1,500 ea.
  • ARTball Party-Only Tickets: $250 ea.

ARTball is AMST’s most important annual fundraising event. Each year, AMST works hard to bring arts education programs and diverse exhibitions to more than 25,000 children annually, in addition to countless residents and visitors of the Coastal Bend—many of whom come from underserved communities that lack the resources to obtain well-rounded, quality learning experiences through art.

Proceeds of ARTball: Avant-Gold ensure that we continue our meaningful impact in the community and beyond. We are planning a spectacular event with a fundraising goal of $200,000 for AMST’s programming. With your support we will meet (and hopefully surpass!) this goal.
