What is WonderShip? WonderShip is an initiative that seeks to connect curious, engaged Atlantans to private collections, top-flight artists and learning opportunities all while building relationships with one another.

What does membership get you?  At $400/year for individuals and $750/year for couples, membership offers you three primary benefits at no additional charge:

  1. access to all four exclusive WonderShip events each year (two private collection tours & two studio visits with Atlanta’s most celebrated artists)
  2. private consultations with Atlanta’s leading gallerists and curators at your home as you begin building and growing your collection
  3. exclusive participation in WonderRoot’s new art-on-loan initiative through which you are able to choose select works from Atlanta’s top galleries to hang in your own home (way cool!)

In addition to these core benefits, WonderShip members receive discounts on various WonderRoot programs, early-bird invitations to events throughout the city and insider information about other arts opportunities.

How do you join?  Interested parties can become a member of WonderShip via online registration or by placing a check in the mail.  To join via mail, please send a check and contact information to WonderRoot, P.O. Box 89108, Atlanta, GA 30312.

Online registrants have the option of making a payment in-full or making recurring installments.

Why participate?  WonderShip is good for you and good for the world.  Not only does WonderShip give you access to the benefits and opportunities outlined above, but it also gives you access to a community of like-minded, innovative professionals and civic leaders.  Additionally, up to $350 of an individual membership and $650 of a couples membership is tax-deductible.

And of course, don’t forget that you’ll be supporting one of Atlanta’s leading arts organizations, enabling WonderRoot to continue delivering award winning programs to artists and youth throughout Atlanta.
