The Norton Museum of Art's annual Bal Des Arts  – Applaud The Arts was held on February 2, at the Grand Ballroom of the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, FL. Thomas C. Quick served as Honorary Chairman, Mrs. Lois Pope and Mrs. Mary Montgomery were Chairwomen. The elegant event included a cocktail reception, dinner, and dancing to the City Lights Orchestra.

The Bal's focus on “Applaud The Arts”is inspired by the genius of the collection from Henry Buhl “A Show Of Hands”.  Some of the greatest names in photography and contemporary art are among the more than 100 artists represented in A Show of Hands: Photographs and Sculpture from the Buhl Collection. A Show of Hands spans the history of photography, including images produced in the practice of science, journalism, and "art."

The event was attended by special guests, including: Sally and William Soter, Jeffrey and Frances Fisher, James and Sara McCann, Robert and Ellen Jaffee, Jeffrey Bateman, Carlos and Renee Morrison, Kemp and Edith Stickney, Katherine and David Dickenson, Bill and Christine Aylward and Stephen and Petra Levin.
