A red carpet, student art show, and unique photo opportunities will bring the Met Gala to the Student Activities Board’s annual President’s Ball Feb. 11.
Caitie Dugan, junior and SAB creative team lead, said the décor of the event models after the Met Gala.
“There will be a red carpet like there is at the Met Gala, greenery like they have at the Met Gala, and a very cool backdrop for photos that will kind of look like a magazine cover,” Dugan said.
The Met Gala is an annual fundraiser hosted at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. It raises money for the Met’s Costume Initiative and attendees’ fashion is often a highlight.
An art gallery will be located in the Hoynak room, featuring the work of student artists and members of the campus art honorary, Alpha Rho Tau, according to SAB staff adviser Maddie Clark.
“The art honorary will have some of their pieces in the Hoynak room, similar to the actual Met, so that will be a unique feature,” Clark said. “I’m really excited to see how that turns out, and we’re glad that we can partner with the art honorary.”
According to Clark, Saturday’s event will have something for everyone.
“There could be food, or the live music for dancing, or just listening too. Also, going and looking at the art and mingling and chatting with friends,” Clark said. “I think there are a variety of things to do.”
Students should attend President’s Ball even if it is not for dancing, but
