Blaffer Art Museum's dazzling “colorsplash”-themed 2017 gala, chaired by Elin Jackson, Caroline Starry LeBlanc, Tamar Mendelssohn, and Marit Babin Stout, was a visual feast for the eyes thanks to eye-catching decor, a rich color scheme, and vibrant fashions. 

Here's a peek inside the party, which helped raise funds for the museum's mission to further the understanding of contemporary art through exhibitions, publications, and public programs.
