Your hosted events in the MAACM Ballroom

The Antique Bar

Adjacent to the MAACM Ballroom, the Antique Bar area features an 18-foot-long Mont Oro bar from 1900. This bar will be utilized exclusively for your event and will offer draft and bottled beer, as well as wines, spirits, and cocktails.

The Collector’s Gallery

Installed in the Collector’s Gallery are 75 rare and important art objects from the Two Red Roses Foundation Collection. This permanent museum gallery, adjacent to the Banquet Hall, is open to events participants and is the only art gallery where drinks are allowed.

Oil paintings on display represent leading artists of the period, such as Arthur Wesley Dow, Elizabeth Fisk, Emil Carlsen, Eanger Couse, Frank Duveneck, John Enneking, Childe Hassam, Maurice Prendergast, Arthur Mathews, and Edward Potthast. The latter’s Beach at Far Rockaway achieved the American auction record for the artist of $1.5 Million. On the adjacent wall there are four display cases filled with decorative works from the Arts and Crafts movement. One case displays ceramics by Grueby, Newcomb College, Frederick Rhead, Dedham, Valentien, Crook, and the Saturday Evening Girls. Another case is exclusively dedicated to objects designed and created by a most eclectic and prolific artist of the Arts and Crafts movement, Sarah Estelle (Sadie) Irvine, who worked and taught at the Newcomb Pottery for nearly forty years. She is most definitely my favorite of all the Arts and Crafts movement artists. Works by Irvine on display include watercolors, pottery, vellum tiles, and a one-of-a-kind ceramic lamp and clock boudoir set. The remaining works of art in the gallery are a carefully selected group of oils, prints, watercolors, pastels, and gouaches, all adorned by beautiful original Arts and Crafts frames.

Exclusive access to the Collectors Gallery is part of the MAACM Ballroom's rental fee. While no food is allowed, you may enjoy sipping your wines and cocktails in this wonderful, private mini-museum.
