The 21st anniversary dinner for more than one hundred guests will raise funds for the Dallas Museum of Art’s Decorative Arts program. The event will celebrate the DMA's outstanding holdings of American decorative arts and design, including a host of works acquired through prior generous support of the Silver Supper. We will celebrate not only silver but furniture, textiles, glassware, ceramics, and other media. These exceptional objects form one of the finest museum collections of their type in the world.
Since 1987, after the Museum received a substantial gift of English and Irish silver from the Hoblitzelle Foundation, the Silver Supper has raised more than $1,000,000. Esther and Karl Hoblitzelle were legendary collectors from the 1930s through the 1950s with a passion for 18th-century English silver, particularly in the high rococo style, much of which was used for entertaining. The idea evolved to stage a dinner in the tradition of the Hoblitzelle parties to build enthusiasm among patrons and increase acquisition funds for decorative arts.
