This year Birmingham’s Museum Ball, the city’s oldest annual black tie gala, turned 60 and Event Rentals Unlimited was right there to celebrate with them! A momentous milestone for The Birmingham Museum of Art, it was celebrated on May 6, 2016 with an unforgettable evening of cocktails, dinner, and dancing underneath one of our beautiful clear top tents. Surrounded by the Museum’s world-renowned collection, the 2016 Museum Ball with the theme ‘The World in Color” was a resounding success. Each year this one event funds the Museum’s education and outreach initiatives, as well as collection acquisitions. Over the years this gala has made a significant impact on the Birmingham Museum of Art and the city as a whole – helping to bring art into the lives of thousands of children and adults.
For “The World in Color” gala our team coordinated the use of a wide variety of our inventory, including tent, tables, chairs, lounge furniture, china, flatware, glassware and more. Working alongside a tremendously talented team of vendors the event was breathtaking from beginning to end. Along with Event Rentals Unlimited the 2016 vendor team included: Birmingham Museum of Art, A.G. Lighting, George Reis with Ocean Restaurant, 5 Point Public House and Oyster Bar and beautiful images captured of the evening by Nick Frontiero Photography.
