Asheville Area Arts Council announces Color Ball date, location and theme

In 1895, George Vanderbilt opened his Biltmore Estate. This year marked the crowning moment of years of construction. The Estate fostered a community adorned with lovers of art, beauty, and culture. The 2014 Color Ball is dedicated to the same elegance and energy of this Golden Age. The Asheville Area Arts Council is delighted to present: The Gilded Ball.

Gild (verb) \ˈgild\ : to overlay with or as if with a thin covering of gold
Merriam-Webster, 2014

SAVE THE DATE: The Gilded Ball will take place on September 27, 2014 at ISIS Restaurant & Music Hall! Join us for a night of entertainment, fine food, silent & live auctions, and much more!  The Ball is sure to be a golden affair for you and friends, and tickets will be available soon! Visit for more information.

Proceeds from the Color Ball directly support AAAC’s year-round programming, newly revitalized to enhance the capacity and impact of the local creative sector. The Asheville Area Arts Council is the collective voice for the arts, advancing Buncombe County by providing access to resources, developing innovative collaborations, and fostering creativity in the community.
