SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //
The public is invited to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Booth Western Art Museum with a party at the Cartersville facility. On Aug. 3, 2013 at 7 p.m. in the Booth Ballroom, members and guests will enjoy an evening of entertainment, hors d’oeuvres and drinks; a visual presentation of the Museum’s 10-year history; and dancing with music by Swing South.
The “Western Swing Dance” was proposed by a group of Booth Members as an opportunity to support the Museum after a decade of service.

“It is the mission of the Museum to educate, entertain and inspire guests through the exploration of Western art, popular culture and American heritage in a welcoming environment,” said Tom Shinall, director of marketing. “Over the past 10 years, the Museum has gained so much from our membership, and this event is an example of their willingness to get involved.”
As the third event of the Booth’s 2013 Summer Entertainment Series, the Western Swing Dance will encourage members and guests to “kick their heels up” in celebration. Western swing band Swing South will provide live music in the style of former featured entertainer Asleep at the Wheel. Attendees will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and receive two drink tickets to be used at the cash bar.
To keep the fun going, a visual presentation highlighting 10 years of Booth Museum exhibits, events, interviews and information will follow. And as a favor for attending the event, members and guests will also receive a souvenir 10th-anniversary Booth Western Art Museum belt buckle.
Tickets for the Western Swing Dance are $60 for Booth Museum members and $75 for non-members. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased by calling (770) 387-1300 or by visiting the Museum.
