Atlanta arts and community advocate, WonderRoot, has teamed up with nationally renowned contemporary dance company gloATL to host a joint fundraising celebration on March 24, 2012, at The W Atlanta – Midtown. The event, Wonderglo, will benefit the artistic and educational endeavors of both organizations.
WonderRoot and gloATL work to provide unparalleled cultural experiences and opportunities for artists. For the past eight years, WonderRoot has provided career-launching opportunities to more than 1500 Atlanta-based artists while serving as a conduit for many of Atlanta’s most important cultural and community institutions. gloATL, founded in 2009 by choreographer Lauri Stallings, has performed its unique brand of contemporary dance for more than 55,000 people in primarily free, public installations. Funds raised by Wonderglo will further support public access to the arts provided by these two organizations.
Over the course of the evening, 1,250 guests will experience elements of Wonderglo. The first wave guests arrive to a seated dinner planned and created by four of Atlanta’s favorite chefs, various live music and video installations, as well as a migration of dance and opera performances. During these first 3 hours, live paintings will take place, and guests will have the opportunity to bid on the new works and other items though live and silent auctions.
Following the dinner, the crux of the evening occurs when a second wave of Atlantans arrive for an interactive art experience that lifts the volume of 3D performances and social exchange to an extraordinary level. At midnight when a final wave of guests arrive, DJ Vicki Powell will lead a dance party of remaining guests.
