The 2020 Beaux Arts Ball, rescheduled due to the pandemic, returns on Tuesday evening, November 17 in the glorious new Betty Kelso Event Center and adjacent Greehey Lawn at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. 

In this time of uncertainty, the Beaux Arts Ball invites us to safely socialize in a peaceful world of beauty and wonder. The magnificent Betty Kelso Center merges seamlessly into the lush oasis of SABOT’s 38-acre garden. Enjoy a leisurely stroll and discover intimate celebrations honoring the winners of AIA san Antonio’s 2020 People + Place awards. Along the way you’ll be tempted to pause and enjoy savory bites and crafted cocktails with your industry friends under a canopy of stars with the sweet refrain of swing music wafting through the trees.

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.
