Lapis Ball

The Lapis Ball is the Aga Khan Museum’s signature event. Hosted annually by Prince Amyn Aga Khan, the Lapis Ball is a remarkable evening of international performances, exhibitions and cuisine that illustrate how cultures are more alike than different.

September 21, 2018, we were joined by more than 370 enthusiastic supporters and sponsors from around the world for the Aga Khan Museum’s Lapis Ball. Together we shared a remarkable evening of art, architecture, and music that demonstrated just how powerful the Museum’s mission to connect cultures through the arts can be. Through the generous support of our guests, the Lapis Ball raised an incredible $500,000 that will allow the Museum to continue to affect positive change in the world around it through its exhibitions, performing arts series, and education programs.
Thank you for helping us connect cultures through art.

Acknowledging our Supporters

We would like to extend special thanks to our generous event sponsors and dedicated Lapis Ball Committee.
