Final Days of Fall Special Exhibitions! Closing December 21

Gorey’s Worlds is the first exhibition to explore Edward Gorey's artistic inspiration and is centered on his personal art collection, bequeathed to the Wadsworth Atheneum, the only public institution to receive his legacy. His collection features a diverse array of 19th and 20th century European and American artists. Catch this peculiar, absurd, mystical, unforgettable experience before December 21.

The Power of Place: 100 Years of Architecture at Ball State University allows you to take a walk back in time for a glimpse into the university’s architectural transformation that points towards a future of limitless opportunities. This exhibition, on view until December 21, was organized in partnership with Ball State University Libraries and the College of Architecture and Planning.

Looking Ahead: DOMA will be closed over the Holiday Break

The David Owsley Museum of Art will be closed to the public beginning at 3pm on December 21 through January 1. DOMA will reopen with regular hours on January 2, 2019.
