Story by Katharine Emlen with Photography by Texture Photo and Katharine Emlen

Ann Bailey and Annie Colquitt were co-chairs at the Third Annual Kick Off to Summer held recently at Knoxville Museum of Art. Large colorful balloon bouquets added a magical touch in the Ann and Steve Bailey Hall. Many guests spilled into the north and south gardens as they enjoyed drinks along with passed appetizers and a casual dinner buffet prepared by Holly’s Eventful Dining. The evening ended on a lively note as guests danced to the music of the Atlanta Showstoppers. The annual celebration raises funds to support the museum’s community outreach programs including the Summer Art Academy, Art2Go Cases and Community Schools.
