Beaux Arts Ball finds new venue

The location for tomorrow’s Beaux Arts Ball was finalized yesterday when the Kentucky Eagle Beer warehouse passed the building inspection around noon, said director Kristi Buchler.

The warehouse, located at 475 Angliana Ave., is the fifth and final venue the planning committee has considered since preparations for the annual College of Design ball began in August. The previous venue, a warehouse on Hickory Street, failed building inspection Tuesday, and the student organizers scrambled to make new arrangements.

The planning committee decided on the new location Wednesday evening, and the Lexington Fire Department approved the site yesterday, making the decision official.

The ball begins at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets are being sold in front of Pence Hall for $20 in advance and will cost $30 at the door. Transportation will be provided for $1 a person from the UK Students Center and from Rupp Arena from 9  to 11 p.m.
