Dallas Museum of Art presents Silver Supper 2017
The Silver Supper coincides with the 75th anniversary of the Hoblitzelle Foundation and was originally inspired by a substantial gift from the Foundation to the Dallas Museum of Art in 1987. Esther and Karl Hoblitzelle were legendary collectors of silver during the 1930s through the 1950s, much of which they used for entertaining. An idea evolved to stage a dinner, Silver Supper, in the tradition of the Hoblitzelle parties, to build enthusiasm among patrons for the Decorative Arts program.
Chaired by Rusty Duvall and Peggy Sewell, the black tie event will include a cocktail reception followed by a seated dinner. In honor of the Foundation’s support and their upcoming 75th anniversary, the Covered Cup, created by Paul de Lamerie and one of the Foundations gifts, will be the signature piece for the 2017 event.
