It has been 95 years since the discovery of King Tut's tomb, and now TUTMANIA IS BACK for one night only!
Join us as we celebrate that fateful day in November of 1922, when a struggling archeologist named Howard Carter unearthed the tomb of one of Egypt's now most famous pharaohs, King Tutankhamun, and the subsequent Egyptomania that followed.
The Art Deco Society of Virginia will present the fifth annual Jazz Age Preservation Ball -- Tutmania Returns! on February 11, 2017. This Roaring '20s gala is designed to raise awareness and funds for Art Deco preservation projects in the Commonwealth. This year’s funds will go toward the Virginia Art Deco Mapping Project, an initiative started by the Art Deco Society of Virginia.
Sponsored by Bygones Vintage Clothing and taking place at the Beaux-Arts styled Bolling Haxall House, the Preservation Ball will feature live music by Philadelphia's own Drew Nugent and the Midnight Society, special guest performances, complimentary Charleston dance lessons, a silent and live auction, 50/50 raffle, food, drinks, dancing and more! All with the proceeds going toward the Virginia Art Deco Mapping Project.
The Virginia Art Deco Mappng Project has been a long-time goal of the Art Deco Society of Virginia. The idea is to create a comprehensive, searchable online (and printable) map of every Art Deco structure in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This initiative not only will allow Virginia residents and visitors to learn about and enjoy the beauty and history of our Art Deco marvels, but also will allow the society to keep tabs on current and future preservation needs of these structures. The proceeds of the ball will go toward purchasing the necessary software and hiring researchers and developers to help make this huge dream a reality.
