The 2020 YoungArts Backyard Ball took place on Saturday, January 11. The evening brought together artists, influential community leaders, philanthropists and celebrities to support and acknowledge the achievements of the 2020 YoungArts winners, the nation’s most accomplished young artists in the literary, visual and performing arts.
As YoungArts’ largest annual fundraiser, the occasion marks the culmination of the organization’s signature program, National YoungArts Week. One of the most comprehensive programs for aspiring artists, National YoungArts Week provides finalists with transformative experiences, including master classes, workshops, interdisciplinary activities and the opportunity to perform for and exhibit to public audiences.
The evening was presented by fine jeweler Harry Winston and hosted by honorary chairs Sandra and Tony Tamer and co-chairs Sarah Arison and Thomas Wilhelm, Jay Franke and David Herro, and Oxana and Steven Marks.
Thank you to the 2020 YoungArts Backyard Ball table hosts.
