With the Spring 2018 semester underway, consider how the David Owsley Museum of Art (DOMA) can engage your students at a new learning venue.

DOMA provides free guided tours for any Ball State class, school, or community group. Self-guided visits, and special object study and viewing visits are also available. To plan your visit, select your topic, date, and time, and then schedule it online. Options include self-guided tours, collection viewing of selected works of art in storage, and object study of a few works of art exhibited in cases for student assignments. We ask that group visits are requested at least 3 weeks in advance to ensure gallery space, tour leaders, etc. are available.

Tours are based on the professor or group organizer’s objectives. Consult with museum education staff Cathy Bretz, education program coordinator, or Tania Said, director of education, to tailor the docent-led tour to your learning objectives. Museum education staff will help recommend other strategies for learning at DOMA too. Viewing the collection not currently on display and object study opportunities in consultation with staff are available with 3 weeks’ notice.

DOMA is typically open every day of the week. If your class meets before 9 am or after 4:30 pm, special arrangements may be made.

Group visits may also be scheduled for Richard Diebenkorn: Beginnings, 1942-1955 on view February 1 - May 20, 2018. Related programs will be announced soon.
