Fundraising for the Arts is our Core Passion
When the Willis Wonderland Foundation shared their mission of “fundraising for the arts”, our ears perked up. It is a core passion amongst the 5D Spectrum team to support Arts Education at the grass roots level whether it be by supporting a local non-profit like Musicians at Play to enrich their in-classroom music programs or a program like AME (California Arts, Media, Entertainment) to provide cross-discipline education to teachers to help students thrive in the Arts, Media and Entertainment industries.
It makes people smarter. Participation in arts education programs is associated with acceleration in cognitive ability, critical thinking, math, reading, and verbal skills. Arts education can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork, all the qualities of the great talents in our industry.
“Even though I was a math/science major, I pivoted into the arts at an early age. I believe that is why I have been blessed with the ability to manage our creative design agency.”De Ivett, Founder 5D Spectrum
After working for Allee Willis and her Estate for the past several years on the preservation of her award-winning web presence since the mid-90s, we were extremely excited and honored to work on the new Willis Wonderland Foundation website. The foundation supports the education and advancement of songwriters and multimedia artists, notably those in underserved communities, who will perpetuate the legacy and extraordinary creative vision of Hall of Fame songwriter, Allee Willis. It supports diverse artists through mentorships, seminars, lectures, and podcasts, as well as Artist-in-Residence programs at Willis Wonderland, Allee’s classic 1937 William Kesling-designed Streamline Moderne home in North Hollywood, that houses one of the world’s largest collections of pop-culture memorabilia.
With the launch of the newly formed foundation website WillisWonderland.org, and their first big fundraising event “Willis Wonderland – Night of Wonders”, we are excited to spread the word!
