The annual party for Speed Art Museum’s Patron Circle has been long regarded as one of the most creative fêtes of the year, each capitalizing on an artistic and original theme. Where the Speed Ball calls for tuxes and evening gowns, the Patron Circle Party calls for absolute creativity in wardrobe. At the 9th annual affair guests were encouraged to dress like the gods or mere mortals and both made lasting impressions. With festive live music, a memorable silent disco and revelry beyond compare, it was an epic soirée for an elite circle.
