National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts) will bring together accomplished artists, industry leaders and notable alumni for the organization’s largest annual fundraiser—the Backyard Ball performance and gala on Saturday, January 12. The celebratory evening will be the culmination of National YoungArts Week, YoungArts’ signature program for the most promising artists across the country.
The event will honor dancer/choreographer Camille A. Brown with the 2019 Arison Alumni Award and famed design team Simon and Nikolai Haas of The Haas Brothers with the 2019 Arison Award, for their contributions and commitment to the arts.
The Backyard Ball is presented by fine jeweler and watchmaker Harry Winston. The evening will conclude with the Backyard Bash on the YoungArts Plaza, featuring cocktails, desserts and dancing under the stars to music by DJ Pirate Stereo.
