The Dada Ball & Bash is a night of revelry, an evening when CAM fans expose their most exuberant and creative selves. In the spirit of the early 20th-century movement that opposed reason with frivolity, nonsense, and the absurd, the Dada Ball & Bash blows a raspberry to conformity. The Dada Ball side of the evening is for cocktails and fine dining amidst mind-blowing decorations and multiple surprises. The Bash is when the night kicks over to another gear and the last vestige of decorum makes an exit. All of this frivolity raises vital support for CAM’s dynamic exhibitions and innovative education programs. It’s also a celebration of the marriage of art and life the Dadaists consummated more than a century ago.
