Take a trip Down the Rabbit Hole to keep discovery, exploration and creativity a part of our Central Wisconsin Community. Education opens up a world of opportunity for kids and YOU can help make that happen!
Part art auction, part celebration of creativity, Crayons, Candlelight and Champagne is a semi-formal event where community members auction off their one-of-a-kind pieces of artwork in support of the educational programs and exhibits at the Central WI Children’s Museum.
This year, local artists and non-artists will be creating “chair” inspired art for a live auction. Some will create chairs out of raw materials, some will create new masterpieces out of old, dismantled chairs. Those attending the event will have the opportunity to walk home with a unique piece of art created by someone right here in our community.
Along with the art auction, attendees can celebrate the creative spirit by lending their hand with a community art project, viewing a children’s art gallery, enjoying delicious food and drink, browsing a silent auction and taking their chance at winning fabulous raffle prizes.
This year our theme is “Down the Rabbit Hole.” The theme sets the setting as a wonderous, magical environment where anything can happen. Attendees can expect to see Alice in Wonderland inspired décor including a giant chess board where they can engage in a little friendly competition.
All proceeds support the educational exhibits and programs of the Central Wisconsin Children's Museum.
