2014 Silver Supper
Friday, February 7, 2014
Chaired by Elizabeth H. Webb
Honoree Peggy Sewell
Honorary Chairman Deedie Rose
The 22nd anniversary dinner for more than one hundred guests will raise funds for the Dallas Museum of Art’s Decorative Arts program.
Silver Supper was originally inspired by the DMA’s unmatched holdings of silver, and the 2014 event will continue our celebration of the Museum’s exceptional international collection of decorative arts and design. With not only silver but also furniture, textiles, glassware, ceramics, and other media, the DMA’s decorative arts and design collection is one of the finest of its type in the world. Funds raised from the Silver Supper will, as in previous years, benefit the Decorative Arts Acquisition Endowment Fund, which allows these collections to continue to grow and flourish. At this event, we will also recognize several new landmark events in the history of the decorative arts and design program.
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.
