Throwback Thursday: Occultoccasion Costume Ball

October 26, 2017

On May 9, 1970, the Albright-Knox hosted its seventh annual costume ball, Occultoccasion. The event was sponsored by the museum’s Junior Group and the Members’ Advisory Council. Many people attended the event in costume and danced the night away while listening to two different bands. Groovy!
