Wonderball (Virtual)

January 30 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The last Saturday of January will again be alive with wonder, creativity, and black & white fashion as Columbus Museum of Art presents the seventh annual Wonderball on Saturday, January 30, from 8:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Wonderball is an evening of music, performance, and immersive experiences that inspire a sense of awe. Going virtual for the first time in 2021, event organizers are working to ensure the event still exudes its unique vibe and the ability to “choose your own adventure” through an interactive online format.

Experiences planned for 2021 are inspired by the theme of “evolve” and range from dance, comedy, and fashion to local music standouts. Highlights include contemporary pole ballet by Amelia Gandara and Micaela Gonzalez, fashion performance by Keäma Official, movement and music collaborative work by Shades of Color, community-built poem performed by Cynthia Amoah, talk show with Hakim Callwood, and the secrets of synth with DJ Moxy Martinez. Guests will have the opportunity to connect through interactive chat, video galleries, and a virtual photo booth.

The 2021 Event Chairs are Christina Basham, Lee Lochtefeld, Ann Mulvany, and Raymond Weaver. This group leads a passionate 50-member volunteer planning committee that guides the vision and experiences featured at Wonderball.

Wonderball will be free to participate in 2021, enabling more people than ever to experience this celebration of the creative spirit of Columbus. Tickets will be released to the public on Thursday, December 31. Sponsorships and donations are welcome and encouraged, with all funds supporting the Museum’s efforts to continue to connect people and art. For details and tickets, please visit www.columbusmuseum.org/wonderball.

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 the virtual 2021 Wonderball and culminating with an in-person Wonderball in January 2022. Details about limited experiences, such as Meet your Museum Match, Wonder Zoom, and Gallery Home Office are available at www.columbusmuseum.org.

Wonderball is made possible by the support of our generous sponsors including Wonder Sponsor Cardinal Health; Creativity Sponsors Bank of America, Equitas Health and FrazierHeiby; Curiosity Sponsors Friedman & Mirman Co., LP, Lee Lochtefeld, Denise Mirman, and Wright-Patt Credit Union; Play Sponsors Connie J.
