Please join us at the Ocean House for the 2023 Black & White Ball: United for the Arts. Come celebrate and support some of our community’s most inspiring, historic, and dedicated performing arts organizations. A lavish gathering awaits, with live music, food, open bar, and festive décor. Proceeds from the event will benefit the UNITED Theatre, Chorus of Westerly, and Salt Marsh Opera and support the inspiring performances, cultural presentations, and educational opportunities presented by all three organizations.
Join Polish born artist Marek Sarba in a discussion about the voyage of the Titanic and its passengers and about Sarba’s dynamic painting that remembers the lives of those who perished. Joining Sarba for the discussion will be Russell Jinishian, who is regarded as the nation’s leading authority on contemporary marine art.
