The Wonder Ball 2018, Honoring Toby and Barry Fernald

Wednesday, September 26, 2018

During a sold-out evening that raised more than 18% of the Museum’s annual revenue for future exhibitions and arts education, nearly 700 guests attended the San José Museum of Art’s Wonder Ball on September 22, 2018. The gala honorees were none other than benefactors Toby and Barry Fernald and artist Hung Liu, whose contributions to arts and culture in the Bay Area are legendary—a sentiment that was overwhelmingly reinforced by the crowd’s warm praise of the honorees and standing ovations. 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.
