It’s been a week since DOMA held its “Meet Your Future Ex at DOMA” event. Want to know what happened? Keep reading! 

On Friday, Feb. 10 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., the David Owsley Museum of Art held its first Valentine’s Day event that celebrated all types of relationships: friendships, family, romantic, or the relationship with oneself.  

The Anti-Valentine’s Event, officially called “DOMA After Hours” featured six main events and activities that spanned across the entire evening.  

Available the entire time was fortune telling from the Society of Earth Based Religions, an ex’s swap shop where attendees could bring something from their ex-partner and swap it with something they just couldn’t get rid of, a photobooth with props with sarcastic and silly props and an ex-effigy making station in the corner of the museum.   

At approximately 6 p.m., anti-speed dating started, where attendees were paired with another one and asked polarizing questions like “Does pineapple belong on pizza?”  

At 7 p.m., there was a storytelling competition where people who signed up told their absolute worst first date story.  

The event was a success and had over 200 attendees that consisted of community members, students, and faculty. Thank you for supporting the museum! 

As always, thank you for reading the DOMA Insider! DOMA is free and open to the public; we are open Tuesday – Friday 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., and Saturday from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Check out our website at https://www.bsu.edu/doma.
