It’s been a week since DOMA held its “DOMA After Hours.” Want to know what happened? Keep reading!

On Friday, Oct. 27 from 5-8 p.m., DOMA held its Halloween-themed event which filled the galleries with spooky music and visitors wearing their costumes. 

The event featured three art making activities, a live storytelling competition, caricaturists who drew in the style of Tim Burton Edward Gorey, and a photobooth that spanned across the entire evening. 

The art making activities were spooky Shrinky Dinks, quilled paper leaves and dead figure drawing with fashionable skeletons.

At 6 p.m., there was a live music performance from Ball State University Singers. 

At 7 p.m., there was a live storytelling competition where attendees told a scary story. 

The event was a success and had 220 attendees that consisted of community members, students, and faculty. Thank you for supporting the museum!

Photographs were taken from a variety of staff, interns, assistants and volunteers.
