Alex Theatre’s Wishing Wall

Join the Alex Theatre in building a monument of hope for the Glendale community by making a wish and tying it to the Wishing Wall on the Alex Theatre’s gates. Inspired by Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree, we at Glendale Arts want to provide a place where hope can thrive.

Join Glendale Arts

from December 7, 2020 through January 8, 2021 in building a monument of hope, because that’s all a wish is: hope. It’s as simple as writing your personal and private wish on a special piece of paper and tying it to the gates of the Alex Theatre.

The collective hopes and dreams left at the gates will connect those who observe them with those who wrote them and serve as a reminder of the power of the community.

Keep wishing until the gates are covered with wishes

Being a part of the Alex Theatre’s Wishing Wall is simple:

Make a wish

Visit the Alex Theatre

Take a tag and write your wish 

Tie it to the gate

Keep wishing until the gates are covered with wishes
