Thank you for being a part of Wonderball 2021
We hope you enjoyed this very different virtual Wonderball. While we couldn’t all be together at the Museum, it was exciting to experience so much of our amazing creative community virtually and celebrate with you in spirit!
Wonderball 2021 marked our seventh year anniversary! What started out as an idea to celebrate creativity has brought together thousands of people around a shared cause. Since 2015, this party with a purpose has helped the Museum raise nearly $1,000,000 in support of programs that foster purposeful play, inspire creativity, and provoke curiosity while supporting our extraordinary creative community.
Enjoy the program?
The Wonderball Committee sat down with a few of our creatives to explore more of their processes and inspirations around their involvement with Wonderball. Read what poet Cynthia Amoah, and Charles Erickson and Donnie Mossman of Pacemour Creative had to share!
New this year, the Museum will be offering the Wonder Experience, a monthly opportunity to be inspired, challenged and surprised all year long, beginning with a virtual 2021 Wonderball and culminating with an in-person Wonderball in January 2022. Watch for announcements and more details about limited experiences, such as Meet your Match, Wonder Zoom, Art Telegrams, and an in-person Wonderball Warm-Up Party on Saturday, August 28, 2021.
