Our 2020 Beaux Arts Ball takes place on Saturday April 4th in the New Frost Tower. AIA San Antonio is proud to be the first organization to host an event in this magnificent space.

The theme of the Ball, Elevated 360° – A Night at the Frost Tower, takes us to the 24th floor where you’ll re-discover the panoramic magic of being in downtown San Antonio. The massive 11,000 square foot open-concept space feels remarkably intimate. Three sleek sophisticated lounges, each creatively furnished, tempt you to linger with industry friends while enjoying a selection of hand-crafted cocktails and savory bites. In the background crooner Christian Wiggs leads his hot new quartet, Vintage 5, in sets of swing favorites. A live skyline sketching event challenges emerging professionals and architecture students from San Antonio College and UTSA’s College of Architecture to imagine coming changes in our city’s skyline.

The Beaux Arts Ball, AIA San Antonio’s annual Gala, is an evening of creative, design-inspired fun. Since 1993, thanks to success of this event and the incredible generosity of our sponsors has enabled our chapter to successfully fund scholarships, library resources, and lecture series for the benefit of our community, the San Antonio College Department of Architecture, the UTSA College of Architecture, and programming for the profession and the community at the Center for Architecture.
