Team Building Sponsorship

Want to encourage a creative, collaborative culture at your company? Provide opportunities for your employees to get to know each other better or build bridges across departments?

Pop-a-Balloonza is a fun, unique opportunity for your team members to join with professional balloon artists to create large-scale, one-of-a-kind sculptures inspired by works from the museum’s permanent collection. They’ll collaboratively puff, pinch, and sculpt with the pros to bring their team’s artistic vision to life.

The sculpture-building will begin in the afternoon on Friday, August 16th, with family, friends, and coworkers joining for an early evening Pop-a-Balloonza party with music, food, libations, and hands-on art projects at the museum. Team members and volunteers are welcome and encouraged to drop by on Thursday to meet their balloon pro leaders, learn some simple techniques, and start preparations for their sculptures. PLUS, they can come back on Sunday at 4 p.m. for a Poppin’ Party, complete with champagne and snacks.

Sign up today for this unique, exclusive experience. Bring up to 10 team members for $1,000. Add additional team members for $100 each. Pop-a-Balloonza party tickets for family, friends, and co-workers are $20 per person, and Sunday afternoon Poppin’ Party tickets are $5 per person.

BONUS! In addition to providing your team with an innovative experience, you’ll also be supporting the museum’s mission to inspire, engage, and build community through the arts. We’ll include your company logo on event materials, announce your participation on social media, and include your logo in the next Artifacts newsletter. The sculptures created Friday night will be part of a friendly competition where everyone’s a winner and will be on view for museum visitors to Instagram throughout the weekend.
