The local artist behind The Cup’s alien-like art

The Cup’s patrons might take their beverage into the seating area to the tune of an indie-alternative song and like Jessica Wolfe, a 2023 graduate of Ball State University, they might notice new additions to the walls since their last visit.

Five hidden gems to visit in Muncie

Muncie has more to offer than just fast-food chains and department stores. The city has made its downtown and surrounding areas a great place to explore and try new things. While every city might have a Walmart and a Taco Bell, not every city has the following places that make Muncie what it is: home.


Art and All Its Forms

Ball State students in the Ceramics Lab work with lots of different kinds of clay, and for lots of different reasons. Two art students and a ceramics professor share their stories with the Ball State Daily News and reveal what the medium means to them.

Wandering through ArtsWalk October

Muncie Downtown Development Partnership hosted ArtsWalk October, where local artists, performers, food vendors and attendees transformed Walnut St. into a marketplace. Muncie YART, PrimeTrust FCU's Soup Crawl and a variety of live entertainment were all a part of said event.

The “Beginnings” of a story

As students return to Ball State’s campus, art at the Ned and Gloria Griner Art Gallery in the new exhibit, “Beginnings,” showing art from 2021 freshman students in the School of Art, welcomes them. Work from the exhibit is scheduled to be displayed from August 23-26 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and a reception, with refreshments, is scheduled for 4-6 p.m. August 24.
