Muncie, IN– The David Owsley Museum of Art will celebrate art and the local community with “Final Friday: Old” 6–9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25.
The event is free and open to the public. Emcees Braydee Euliss and C.S. Hendershot will host PechaKucha speed talks with a variety of local voices discussing their experiences with the topic “Old.” Guests will have the opportunity to view the museum’s collection during late hours and participate in an “un-tour” of the special exhibition “Recent Acquisitions: Connecting to the Past, Committing to the Future.”
The museum will offer an accompanying reception with refreshments, cash bar, music by DJ Jannell, sketch portraits by Ball State student Lauren Lykins and a chocolate art demonstration by Morgan Roddy, owner of the Queer Chocolatier.
“We are excited to have our second Final Friday of the semester,” said Tania Said, Director of Education for the museum. “This is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and experience DOMA in a different atmosphere and celebrate the topic of “Old” as visitors experience what is creative and cool about our community and our collection.”
