2023 Beaux Arts Ball: Diamond Jubilee Masquerade!
A Beaux Arts Ball (pronounced "boze art") is a fundraising gala traditionally held to support visual arts organizations, such as ours! Won't you join us in celebrating our 60th "Diamond" Anniversary by becoming a sponsor or buying tickets and attending the event.
After costs, 100% of the proceeds from this fundraising gala will go to support our community arts mission, bringing free and low-cost visual art education and opportunities to all ages and abilities in our communities.
Thank you for your support!

And if that's not enough to keep you enthralled, get ready for the cherry on top: Batul from Corona's very own Zabardust Henna will be crafting gorgeous henna tattoos for the very special rate of just $5 per hand (cash or card).
Zabardust Henna is a well-known henna tattoo artist in Corona, California, known for her intricate and beautiful designs. Batul is a skilled artist who use only natural and safe henna dyes to create unique designs.
Henna tattoos have been used for centuries in many cultures for various occasions like weddings, religious festivals, and other celebrations. They are a form of temporary body art that uses a natural dye made from the henna plant. Unlike traditional tattoos, henna tattoos are painless and fade away over time, usually lasting for a couple of weeks.
