During the Roaring 20s, the Society of Beaux-Arts Architects threw an annual ball, as the students of the Ecole des Beaux Arts had in Paris that served as the key fundraiser for the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design’s educational programs and activities. The balls involved elaborate costumes and performances covered extensively with the theme of the Modernism during the Depression. The Beaux-Arts Ball was brought to New York City by the Beaux-Arts Institute of Design as a fundraising initiative. The Beaux-Arts Ball was an immediate success, both a great party and a great production from the design students, it was quickly adopted as a model by other organizations across the country. The College of Architecture at Texas Tech want to revive this event with the involvement of design students here in Lubbock.
