This year's Art Ball features Objects of Wonder from Ohio State University, an exclusive exhibition showcasing the university's diverse collections. Both Art Ball and ArtFUSION guests will enjoy an evening of exceptional food and wine, fine entertainment and unique art and treasures.

American Electric Power is the lead sponsor of both events. Proceeds will benefit educational programming at the museum.
