RIT's University Gallery on October 27 hosted its second annual Beaux Arts Ball, for which all first year RIT Design, Art, and Crafts students create functional costumes using limited materials, basing their designs on art history research. The ball has a history dating as far back as the 1950's; RIT lecturer Graham Carson revived the event in 2016 after years of dormancy.
A selection of the colorful, imaginative costumes are on display at Bevier Gallery (James E. Booth Hall 7A, 73 Lomb Memorial Drive) through January 6. Admission is free. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, noon to 4 p.m. Hours may vary on holidays, so call ahead before visiting. 475-2646; cias.rit.edu/bevier-gallery.
