About the Betty Mae Kramer Gallery and Music Room

The new Betty Mae Kramer Gallery and Music Room in the Silver Spring Civic Center serves as living tribute to the former First Lady of Montgomery County who devoted her energy to garnering support for the arts and humanities in Montgomery County.

Mrs. Kramer, who passed away in March 2010, led the volunteer efforts to establish the Executive's Ball for the Benefit of the Arts in 1986 when her husband, the Honorable Sidney Kramer, was elected County Executive. Since then, the Ball has raised more than $1 million to benefit a variety of nonprofit arts and humanities organization
