On Saturday, September 22, nearly 700 guests attended the San José Museum of Art’s sold-out event, The Wonder Ball. The gala was in honor of benefactors Toby and Barry Fernald and artist, Hung Liu. The gala dinner and auction were held outside under the Circle of Palms, followed by The Mirror Ball, an after-party inside the Museum with live music, cocktails, and dancing. The funds raised at this year’s event represent more than 18% of the Museum’s annual revenue and support SJMA’s landmark exhibitions, inclusive public programs, and education initiatives serving more than 100,000 individuals annually throughout San José and Silicon Valley.
