Columbus Museum of Art’s beloved Wonder Room is being transformed into a mysterious and playful forest filled with great art and one-of-a-kind hands-on activities designed by local artists and crafts people. The Wonder Room is our unique and dynamic gallery environment in the Center for Creativity, where visitors of all ages discover great works of art AND make, imagine, and play together. But what is a forest without woodland creatures?
We’ve commissioned Heidi Kambitsch of Openheartcreatures to design and create new costumes for Wonder Room visitors to use in its new woodland environment. Visitors will be able to discover, imagine and play with masks, capes, headgear, footwear, claws, paws, wings and things inspired by trolls and bats and trees and birds.
Read more on the project, and how you help us transform the Wonder Room into a magical forest! All donors to the Wonder Room project will receive an invitation to a special opening event for the new Wonder Room at CMA on December 14. Give here through through the new Power2Give initiative. Thanks to the generosity of Chase Bank, donations will be matched.
Please note: the Wonder Room will be closed starting November 4 while we reimagine the space. Be sure to visit us to see all the exciting changes.
