Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art
Marietta – In June of 1997, Muggles were introduced to the Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling for the very first time. The Marietta/Cobb Museum of Art is transforming their galleries into the halls of Hogwarts for two fantastic immersive events, where fans of all ages can celebrate twenty years of magic in style.
On June 23, 2017 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm, MCMA will host a Hogwarts Exchange Trip. Children ages 7 to 17 will be Sorted, enjoy a feast in the Great Hall, try their hand at Potions, Transfigure fabric into an owl, and solve a mystery. There will also be a trivia game and a costume contest before our students return to the Muggle world with pictures of their magical trip. Students who bring a children’s book to donate to a local literacy program will receive a free wand. The fee to attend is $30.00, and attendance is limited to 80 students. (THIS EVENT IS FULL)
On June 24, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, MCMA will host a Hogwarts Alumni Reunion. Adult fans ages 18 and older will enjoy a feast in the Great Hall with a live DJ and magical drinks. There will be a costume contest and a scavenger hunt featuring the Maurader’s Map. Divination sessions with a professional palm reader will be available for an additional fee. Each attendee will receive a free souvenir pint glass at the event. The fee to attend is $35.00, and attendance is limited to 300 guests.
Pre-registration is required for both of these events. Fans who would like to help make the magic happen are also encouraged to volunteer with preparations. Interested parties can contact Allison Frink, the Director of Education, at 770-528-1444 x16 or email@example.com.
