It is with great sadness that we share the news of our owner and co-founder’s passing. "Walking through the little purple door at Wild Rumpus is like walking through a portal into Tom Braun’s brain. A magical, welcoming place full of curiosity and learning, wit, whimsy, artistic vision, great humor and a deep, abiding appreciation of words, language and literature, plus a great love and respect for children and animals."
A celebration of Tom Braun's life will be held Nov 25, 1-3PM at Walker Art Center Skyline Room. In Tom’s honor, Wild Rumpus will remain open on that day, and profits will be donated to three organizations very dear to him: Minneapolis Climate Action (formerly Linden Hills Power & Light), the Alzheimer’s Association, and Emerge MN.
