High Fashion at the Marquee Ball

By Dallas Shelby

Every year I was an artist in residence there, the Creative Alliance would commission a Pasquinade Films short for their annual Marquee Ball. In 2006 they chose an Esther Williams-inspired theme: Million Dollar Mermaid. We took the idea, made it our own and produced a short that was one part “Million Dollar Baby” and one part “Splash” — “Million Dollar Mermaid.” And, as always we came to the ball dressed to kill… or swim.

As I recall our outfits were better received than the movie.
