Sunday: Community Day at DOMA for Homecoming Weekend!

Stop by DOMA between 1:30 and 4:30pm on Sunday, October 22 to enjoy fun hands-on activities and a look at special exhibitions, including sports-themed Action! The Anatomy of LeRoy Neiman's Champions. As always, open to the public and free admission!

Save the Date! Final Friday: Interaction at DOMA on October 27

MCs Braydee Euliss and Levi Todd introduce PechaKucha* talks to Muncie to highlight what is unique, unexpected, and inspiring in our city.

Enjoy music by DJ Jannell, refreshments, cash bar, art, a look at special exhibitions, poetry with Reacting Out Loud, and more. Free admission and open to all!

*PechaKucha, Japanese for "chit chat," is a concise presentation format where 20 images are timed to automatically advance every 20 seconds as a presenter talks along. Each presentation lasts only 6 minutes, 40 seconds. This is an informal and fun gathering where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, snaps-just about anything, really-in the PechaKucha format.
