Anna Mugerditchian, the 2016 winner of the “Beaux Arts Ball Young Woman of Achievement Award” presented the 2017 award to Sophia Caroline Marcolla, daughter of Richard & Lora Marcolla.
This award is given in the honor of the founding women of the Quincy Art Center, whose vision and dedication to community resulted in the creation of the art center.
This award signifies the importance of community service. The award is based on the number of hours volunteered at The Quincy Art Center.
The Beaux Arts Ball is a Quincy tradition that first took place in 1930. It was sponsored by the Quincy Art Club and held at the Hotel Lincoln-Douglas.
Since 1940, the Queen candidates have helped to sell tickets to the Ball. Over the years the people and places have changed numerous times, but the main focus of the Beaux Arts Ball has always been to support the arts in the community through the Quincy Art Center.
