This year’s fundraiser for the Sioux City Art Center is going to be epic! The room will be filled with tens of thousands of balloons. The sheer number of balloons will blow your mind. But there’s more…

We are creating a unique art immersion experience using balloons thanks to a company that specializes in balloon art installations. Let’s be clear, there is a difference between decorations and art installations. This will be like nothing you have ever seen in Sioux City before.

Using balloons, our guest will explore shape and dimension, as well as other elements of art. They will also experience color in a captivating new way. Monochromatic saturation allows people to truly understand what a color feels like and we will be pairing music that represents each color to heighten the experience.

During the event, people will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres and drinks while socializing with friends. They can leisurely walk through different balloon installations and just enjoy the experience. With that said, people should feel free to dress however they please.

Whether you can attend Pop, a Fundraiser or not, you need to get your $25 Raffle Tickets for a chance to win the grand prize: The Ultimate Hard Rock Experience!
