The Prime Time Prom invites you to dress up and relive your high school glories (or create the prom experience you never had). Go elegant or go garish, just make sure you don’t miss this unforgettable grownup prom! The Prime Time Prom will feature everything you’ve come to expect from The DAI’s Prime Time Parties: great food & drinks, music for dancing, a fantastic raffle, and a few surprises. And of course there will be an awesome theme, as well as a prom king and queen!
Food and drink, as always, will be an integral part of the next Prime Time Party. The evening’s menu, provided by Elite Catering, will include high-school-themed delicacies such as mini pizzas, mini burgers & fries, a Mac-n-Cheese bar and more. Unlike high school, the Prime Time Prom will feature a cash bar, so it’s definitely a 21 and up event! The DAI’s resident mixologists will be serving up specialty cocktails with a prom theme – think “spiked punch”, etc. – and series sponsor Heidelberg Distributing Co. will be on hand with samples of some of their latest libations.
As with past parties, the Prime Time Prom will feature a raffle with fantastic prizes, highlighted by jewelry from series sponsor James Free Jewelers.
Music will be provided by Black Box, who spun the tunes for last year’s Studio 54 Disco Party. They will offer up a mix of danceable hits from a variety of eras. And of course it wouldn’t be a party without the obligatory “prom photo,” so Black Box will also provide a photo booth to capture the moment.
Costumes are always encouraged (but not required) at Prime Time Party Rental Series events, so guests are encouraged to get creative with their attire – from traditional formal wear to vintage, retro, DIY and everything in between!

The pop-culture themes of the Prime Time Party Rental series always feature a connection to the museum’s permanent collection or special exhibitions. The Prime Time Prom will feature a self-guided tour of works in the collection that have been featured at past DAI Art Balls. The elegant Art Ball is the museum’s annual black tie gala and one of its largest fundraisers. This year’s Art Ball takes place two weeks after the Prime Time Prom, on June 14.
