  • Poetry Reading with Mark Neely 7:30pm to 12:42pm @ Bracken Library, Ball State University Room 104

    Ball State English professor and poet Mark Neely will read from his new chapbook, Four of a Kind (Concrete Wolf Press), next Tuesday, October 26th at 7:30 p.m. in Bracken Library, room 104. The reading will be followed by a reception and book signing with the author. Both events are free and open to the public and refreshments will be served.

    Praise for Mark Neely's Four of a Kind:
    "Think newspaper columns: dispatches from the zeitgeist, fromancestral voices, from dreams, from terra incognita.  Think mullioned windowpanes: visions of the real, the hyper-real, TV, the neighbors. Think triptychs plus one in the excessive American way.  Think classical five-act play minus one in the age of diminished expectations. Think split screen, think directions on maps, think humors of the body.  While each frame is an act that arrests, the other frames undermine, amplify, illuminate, or incinerate the original.  Flights turn into dreams turn into blues turn into names in an amazing shape-shifting way.  They are echo chambers that resonate long after the initial reading. They have a furious and inescapable power."  --Bruce Smith, poet

  • Lend Me a Tenor 7:30pm to 12:42pm @ University Theatre, Ball State University
    Cost: $7 to $13 (see description)

    Students from Ball State University's Department of Theatre and Dance will combine a whirlwind of mistaken identities, slamming doors and compromising plot twists in the hilarious farce "Lend Me a Tenor," opening on the University Theatre stage March 29 at 7:30 p.m. Additional performances are scheduled March 30-31 and April 4-7, with a matinee at 2:30 p.m. April 1. "The play was a smash hit on Broadway and continues to be popular with audiences nearly 30 years later," said Michael O'Hara, director of the production and associate dean of the College of Fine Arts. "I'm thrilled to return to one of my favorite comedies."

    The play starts on the biggest night in the history of the Cleveland Grand Opera Company. The year is 1934, and the guest artist, world famous Italian tenor Tito Morelli, is nowhere to be found. Even worse, when Morelli finally appears, a blackout-inducing combination of alcohol and sedatives leaves the company's assistant manager, Max, believing he is dead. What follows is a chain reaction of hilarious confusion and mistaken identity as Max tries to save the performance in this screwball comedy.

    Students have been rehearsing the play since the beginning of February. A farce typically takes time to get all the mechanical aspects worked out, doors opening and closing, sleight of hand, timing and several props, O'Hara said.

    "Because this cast is made up of undergraduates, the physical comedy they're able to achieve is simply amazing," he added. "The amount of energy and physicality they infuse into the comic moment is worthy of anyone's attention."

    Tickets for the performance cost $13 for the general public, $12 for faculty and staff, $10 for senior citizens and $7 for students. They are available from the University Theatre Box Office, open from noon to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Contact the box office at 765-285-8749 or visit www.bsu.edu/theatre for more information.

  • Here Come the Mummies 8pm to 12:42pm @ Emens Auditorium Ball State University
    Cost: $18(adv.)/$20(door)
    Ages: 15+

    It’s been a long and dusty road since 1922 when, at a dig in the desert south of Tunis, Professor Nigel Quentin Fontenelle Dumblucke IV (1895-1973) unearthed the ruins of an ancient discotheque to find a dozen undead Egyptian mummies inexplicably throwing down what he dubbed, "Terrifying Funk From Beyond the Grave.” These mummies will amaze audiences with a funk concert unlike anything you have seen before.

    From these hovering souls, who called themselves Here Come The Mummies, Professor Dumblucke learned of the powerful curse that doomed them to wander the earth, seeking the ultimate riff, the one that may allow their spirits to rest after eons of, as they put it, "banging out solid fly grooves, y'all." This so-called curse may have been retribution for the deflowering of a great Pharaoh's daughter, but the story has become somewhat murky over the centuries.

    What is clear is that these saucy spectors resurfaced around the turn of the Millennium. Without so much as a hot bath, HCTM would open for P-Funk and Al Green, rock Super Bowl Village 2012, become regulars at The Bob and Tom Show and massive festivals like Summerfest, and make themselves the darlings of sell-out crowds over wide swaths of North America. Maybe that's why the ladies (and some dudes) can't stop losing their minds over these mayhem-inducing mavens of mirth.

    Tickets on sale July 12, 2013.

    Every Thursday at The Cup, a recent episode of "The Scene" from Indiana Public Radio will be played. "The Scene" highlights the best live local music from Central Indiana. Swing by, have a great cup of coffee, and enjoy some great tunes!

    This episode:

    Steven and the Savvy - "Steven Dunn started playing music when he took his first piano lesson in kindergarten. After many years, and forgetting most of his piano lessons, Steven has finally made his own impact on the music scene. An avid songwriter, he developed a unique and personal style sliding apart from the indie standard of fashion and song style. Starting as a solo artist in December of 2009, a band started forming midway through 2010, Steven and the Savvy was born. They have been featured in Nashville, Chicago, Indianapolis, and their hometown of Bloomington, IN. As a group they draw their inspiration from friends and family, and ultimately from all the beautiful life around them. So, come check out their shows and maybe you’ll inspire their next song."

    Hawk and Dove - 6-piece psychedelic folk country rock.

  • The Scene @ the Cup: Ep 7 - BGPJ & The StereoFidelics 7pm to 12:42pm @ The Cup 1606 W. University Ave

    Every Thursday at The Cup, a recent episode of "The Scene" from Indiana Public Radio will be played. "The Scene" highlights the best live local music from Central Indiana. Swing by, have a great cup of coffee, and enjoy some rad tunes!

    This episode:

    BGPJ - Two-piece blues/rock band from Marion, IN.

    The StereoFidelics - "Imagine you’re back in time enjoying the groove and virtuosity of 70’s art-rock band, then hurled decades forward, colliding with the energy and intensity of today’s indie rock scene. There’s unexpectedly powerful jazzy female vocals intertwined with a strong, satin-smooth male voice. Thumping synth basslines and popping, funky drumbeats drive the skillfully intricate guitar playing and explosions of electric violin string-shredding. Reflecting their influences of past and present (including Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, the Talking Heads, Arcade Fire, and the White Stripes), the StereoFidelics avoid performing with loops, computers, and digital effects in favor of the more organic approach of using Moog Taurus pedals, scat vocal solos, and multi-instrumentalism. You see, the fast-fingered guitar player (Chris Padgett) keeps the basslines pounding through a one-octave floor keyboard, the tiny female vocalist (Melissa McGinley) is also the drummer; he sings too, and she plays violin. They perform with a natural passion and synchronicity that not only dispels any association with the herky-jerky one-man-band cliché, but post-performance, leaves their audience sympathetically exhausted and dripping with sweat."

  • Write Your Legislator Day(s) 9am to 5pm @ Art and Journalism Building, Ball State University Atrium 1001 N. McKinley Ave.

    On November 14th and 15th Students for Creative Social Activism is hosting Write Your Legislator Days (WYLD) in the Atrium. Come in for some expert guidance on how to effectively go from being concerned about an issue, to contacting the correct elected official with your concerns.

    The goal of the WYLD event is to show everyone that they have the ability to make their opinions heard to their representatives. We believe that every student should graduate ready to be active and informed citizens. We will have tables set up in the Atrium with information on how to research legislation, legislators, and effective writing. 

    A huge thank you to the Ball State University Democrats and the Ball State College Republicans for working with us to make this event a success!

  • The Scene @ the Cup: Ep 8 - Molehill & Late Nite Reading 7pm to 12:42pm @ The Cup 1606 W. University Ave

    Every Thursday at The Cup, a recent episode of "The Scene" from Indiana Public Radio will be played. "The Scene" highlights the best live local music from Central Indiana. Swing by, have a great cup of coffee, and enjoy some rad tunes!

    This episode:

    Molehill - "Since 2009 Molehill has had over 150 performances throughout the Midwest and East Coast and along the way has opened for major and indie label acts Bret Michaels, Blind Melon, Royal Bliss, The Elms, and Jesse Malin. In 2010-12 Molehill showcased at the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA and was featured twice in the Red Eye (Chicago Tribune Pop Publication) along with features in numerous local print and online publications. 2011 continued with tours throughout the midwest and east coast and an invitation to perform at CBS Studio Chicago where they received high praise from a celebrity panel including owner of the Metro (Chicago) Joe Shanahan, US99 Morning Show Host Lisa Dent and Chicago R&B stalwart Frayne Lewis.On March 6th, 2012 Molehill’s new album ‘Equinox’ was released. The release was coupled with a sold out show in Chicago. ‘Equinox’ was produced by Manny Sanchez and Molehill."

    Late Nite Reading - "Surfacing from suburbia Indiana, pop-punk band Late Nite Reading is quickly climbing up the industry ladder and doesn’t show signs of slowing down. After two EP releases and ready for a third, the band has done nothing but spread their name and tour non-stop throughout 2012 & 2013. For being a band just out of high school, they have already shared the stage with an impressive roster of bands such as All Time Low, Cartel, The Summer Set, and Taking Back Sunday."

Replogle is one of Muncie’s best-kept secrets: a world-class soloist who spends most of his time being a husband, father and computer geek. Mike White is known as one of Indiana’s best lead trumpeters.

    Music director of America's Hometown Band is Roger McConnell.

The Guild will be unveiling their mural that depicts a 1907 downtown Muncie scene entitled, “Main Street Looking West”. Twenty-one artists from the Guild participated by each painting an 18”x18”canvas depicting a section of the scene.  Some of the artists used oils while others chose to paint with acrylics. The panels will be assembled to create the large mural.  The mural will remain on display at the Artist Within throughout the month of October, but will then be moved to a permanent location in City Hall as a gift to the city from the Muncie Artists Guild. The members will also be showing several individual works of art.  Please join us for the October 1st reception at the Artists Within featuring music by Bryce Taylor and light refreshments.

    In addition to the exhibit, Toren Scott will have his pottery on display out front with Normandy Flowers on the scene filling Toren's pieces with fresh flower arrangements by his wife Audrey.

The project was funded by a grant to MDDP by Ball Brothers Foundation and was designed by PROJECTiONE and Ball State’s Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts. The launch of this one-of-a-kind public attraction will be the cornerstone of our celebration of Muncie’s 150th birthday.

    Cornerstone Center for The Arts
    520 E Main

    Join Cornerstone Center for Arts for the First Thursday ArtsWalk on October 1, 2015, for your last chance to see "Pop Art Presidents" by Missy Adams. The show entitled “Pop Art Presidents” is a collection of paintings honoring the lives and history of the 43 presidents of the United States.

    Missy Adams is a local artist who took her love of portrait painting and history to create a series of paintings celebrating the colorful personalities and interesting lives led by the nation’s presidents. The show was painted with the limited color palette of red, white, and blue and utilizes shading and layering to create depth representing each president’s own personality. Each painting features a corresponding quote from that president displayed under their portrait.

    The artist will be present from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Cornerstone Art Gallery on the second floor of Cornerstone Center for the Arts, 520 E. Main St, Muncie.

    Adams describes painting as her passion, love, therapy, and her nightmare at times. She started painting at a young age and has been primarily self-taught. She has experimented with watercolor, acrylics, oil, gouache, and even coffee to paint on glass, cardboard, canvas, and paper to discover what works best. She describes her style as not realistic per se, attributing her ability to see things differently from others as her inspiration.

    For more information about the show visit http://www.cornerstonearts.org.

    Monkey Thunder 5

    Monkey Thunder started four years ago as a one-night only, pop-up, art coup of sorts in an effort to address the wants and needs of an under-served faction of our local arts community. With little to no guarantee of staying power, it thrived. After 4 glorious iterations, Monkey Thunder is back, and it's going public!

    Organized and curated by Gallery Manager Braydee Euliss, MT5 will be a month-long event with the opening reception coinciding with ArtsWalk, Downtown Muncie's biggest First Thursday of the year on October 1st from 5 - 9 PM.

    The artwork featured will be an eclectic selection of both 2D and 3D work from local and regional artists, current faculty and students at Ball State University School of Art, as well as guest artists from across the country.

    In addition to the work displayed at GFAF gallery, Monkey Thunder 5 includes video, performance, and other time-based artwork on view in Muncie Civic's Black Box Theatre under the direction of Maura Jasper, visual artist, filmmaker, and Assistant Professor of Intermedia Art at BSU. This 'side-show' is a Monkey Thunder favorite and offers a rare exhibit experience for both the artists and the audience.

    Light refreshments will be served, DJ Jannell will provide the music, and the public is invited to attend. This is a family friendly event, but please note, the work on exhibit will be interpretive, experimental, difficult, conceptual, and subversive. Gordy Fine Art & Framing is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre. For more information, call 765-284-8422, visit us on Facebook, or on the web.

Whether you’re making a short film, learning to code, or manipulating circuitry to create sound, our makerspaces have the tools and knowledge to help you complete your project.

    Narrative Tables, Dept of Architecture BSU, Instructor: Sean Burns
    How might concepts and methodologies of “narratology” be integrated within the design and fabrication of an object?  This exhibition investigates the potential for a table to serve as a medium to express a chosen story, using narrative world-making strategies, borrowed from contemporary literary theories. Each designed table tells and teaches a different story by encouraging the message of the narratives to be discovered, interpreted, and experienced by the end user through the detailing, material selections, form, and function of the object.

    Title: Dynamo IV
    DYNAMO is an art collective dedicated to promote diversity of art throughout our community. Our fourth show consists of artwork from student and local artists with a variety of media and subject.

    Jenny Smith (http://jennysmithphotography.com)
    Instagram has become one of her favorite social media outlets. The saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, is oh so true. An interesting image can stand alone… however, if you decide words are necessary, you can always #hashtag your comments so others may search your chosen descriptive words and see for themselves the images you have posted.

    Come take a look at the work of @jennymooresmith and apply her tips in processing images that post to Instagram. All you must do is create your own account. Most everyone has a cell phone - use that camera and download free apps. Join the #instacraze revolution today! Instagram images are easy to print if that’s your desire.

    The square format is the standard for Instagram, however you can make any size image fit into that format for posting and printing. My top 3 Apps: Instagram, Snapseed, SquareReady

    Andrea Swartz (http://atozstudioworks.com)
    Andrea Swartz, an architecture professor at Ball State’s College of Architecture and Planning (who just likes making), will show images and artifacts of a recent installation done for the Indianapolis Art Center. See @macqueenswartz #installationnation and #stitching to get a preview. A shout out to Muncie’s own Steve Selvey and Robert Jessee of ROC: Reclaim Repurpose Architectural Salvage on Liberty Ave. (and on Facebook) for their support on this project.

  • True West by Sam Shepard 7:30pm to 12:42pm @ The Heorot Pub & Draught House Upstairs 219 S Walnut St

    Think, Dog Productions' final show for this season is True West by Sam Shepard. Performances are April 1-2, 8-9 and the 15th at 7:30pm in the upstairs space of the Heorot in DWNTWN Muncie.

    Tickets are $8 or $5 for college students with ID. Reserve your tickets by messaging us on Facebook or call 765-741-0591 and you will pay at the door (cash only, please).

    True West is a classic brother versus brother tale set against the backdrop of Hollywood glamour and quiet suburban life. Set in an outer Los Angeles suburb on the edge of the desert, True West focuses on the tense reunion of two brothers that are leading very different lives.

    The oldest brother, Lee, a drinking, drifting thief is visiting his estranged brother Austin and is looking to go on a burglary spree. Austin, an aspiring Hollywood screenwriter, is housesitting for their mother who is away. Austin quickly finds Lee meddling with his next project - jeopardizing all that he has been working towards. As the play unfolds and the brothers learn about each other's lives, the audience is left wondering: which brother is Cain, and which is Abel?

    Stage Manager - Jeff Rapkin
    Technical Director - Taylor Watkins

    Cast:
    Austin - Sean Orlosky
