Best of Boston
2014 Best Arts Gala
The "it" gala for art-loving philanthropists, this biennial soiree features a timed silent auction of contemporary art, with price points starting at a mere $150 and a few coveted beauties breaking the five-digit barrier. All in all, the bash raises roughly $700,000 for the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. Naturally, the objets d’art aren’t the only sculpted visions to behold at this black-tie fete, where aspiring arts-world sensations schmooze and booze their way amid the dandy and gadabout crowd.
