National Marble Day & Hunt at WheatonArts

Loading Events

In celebration of National Marble Day, we are hosting another marble hunt with prizes on the grounds!  Additional activities include painting with marbles workshop, marble courts for playing, and a small display of marbles from the Museum’s collection.  It is free to participate in the outdoor marble hunt and activities on July 23.  Admission tickets are needed to visit the Museum of American Glass, Folklore Center and Artist Studios.  Members are always free!

Are you ready to go Marble Hunting?! We will be hiding large and small Marbles throughout our campus for you to find!  Here is how to play:
1.  On Sunday, July 23, we will post several photos of Large “Lost” Marbles on Facebook at 11 a.m.

2.  Each photo will contain a clue for one (1) Marble’s location.

3.  Three hundred (300) small decoy Marbles will be hidden to distract you! (Please do not eat the Marbles, they are not edible.)

4.  If you find a large Marble, quickly bring it to the info table to collect your prize: a one-of-a-kind Glass Marble created by artist Bill Futer to keep!

5.  We will mark each photo as “Found” once the Marble is turned in.  So keep your eye out for changes on our Facebook page!

6.  First to find, first to win!  The hunt will end once all the Large Marbles are found. Smaller decoy marbles can continue to be hunted for added fun.
