    Muncie Mystery!
    (begins at Canan Commons and continues throughout the downtown area)
    Downtown Development and Ball State’s Office of Community Engagement present Muncie Mystery! We need your "hand" solving this year's Muncie Mystery! Join us downtown during September's First Thursday to question suspects, look for clues and - hopefully - solve the case!

    What we know so far: The Addams Family’s beloved Helping Hand, Thing, is missing! The butler, Lurch, suspects that someone in the family knows where Thing is because there was evidence from each of them left in the same room where his empty box was found, the library of Addams Manor. 

    Pick up your Crime Tracker form and map at Canan Commons beginning at 5:30 p.m., then visit participating downtown businesses to hear alibis from the suspects and look over the evidence. Turn in your guesses at Canan Commons by 7:30 p.m. because the big reveal is set for 8 p.m. on the Canan Commons stage.

    Sleuths with correct guesses will be entered into a drawing for great downtown prizes! (You must be present at reveal to win!)

    Muncie Mystery is hosted by Ball State's Office of Community Engagement, Muncie Downtown Development Partnership, Ivy Tech Community College, and Muncie Civic Theatre.

    111 Arts Gallery 
    111 E. Main
    @garfieldfrommemory is the guest artist at first Thursday art show in September 9/7 dont miss this !! Kate Parnell is 43 years old, and since February 24, 2019 she has drawn and painted Garfield (the cartoon cat) every day. She lives and works in her parents’ house in Richmond, Virginia, and travels around the country doing small pop up markets where she sells paintings and gets to meet some of her 18,000+ Garfield-loving instagram followers. While her subject matter is deceptively simple, drawing Garfield from memory saved her life, becoming not only a creative outlet but also a source of income, stability and confidence after many years of battling depression. These Garfield drawings and paintings form a body of work spanning four and a half years, reflecting not only her taste but the incredible sensibilities of her followers, whose Garf commissions of album covers, portraits, pets, inside jokes and erotica have “kept the lights on” and kept the project going. It is a kind of self-portrait, not only of the artist but of a community of people who find joy in humor, creativity, and love for a fat orange icon of the past 45 years, in both the tenuous space of a social media platform and in the real world.

    Parnell is also attempting to become the Guinness World Record holder for most tattoos of a single cartoon character. She has 32 Garfield tattoos, and needs 24 more to take the title. Like her daily Garfing, the process of building her Garf tattoo collection has given her a joyous momentum and introduced her to artists around the world. Screening at the show will be filmmaker Michael Arcos’ documentary short “Orange From Memory,” which offers a glimpse into the world of Garfield From Memory and its incredibly orange obsession. This 14 minute piece will be screened at multiple film festivals in the fall.

The workshop encourages participants to create new world visions or add ideas about the world as it remakes itself. The workshop will take place during First Thursday from 5-8 p.m. also in the Great Room.

    Gordy Fine Art & Framing Co. 
    224 E. Main
    Patterns in Nature: the Art of Aaron Nicholson:
    Gordy Fine Art and Framing is proud to highlight the art of Muncie resident Aaron Nicholson. Nicholson’s art reflects physical patterns found in the natural world as well as behavioral patterns in the way humans relate to nature, both on earth and our observations and speculations about the universe. The party will be on First Thursday, September 7, from 5 – 8 pm with live music by Luke Mitchell and Joshua Vance. The artist will be on hand. Light refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend.

    Nicholson is a sculptor and a painter. His most ambitious work uses ancient techniques of pouring molten metal into sand molds. When he does this, the act of making art is itself an expression of his relationship to natural materials. Many of the sculptures in the exhibition were made this way.   

    At 6:15, Nicholson will speak about his work and the techniques he uses to make it.The exhibit will remain on view through September 30. 

    At Muncie’s recent Fire Up Downtown event in early August, Nicholson organized an Iron Pour where he fired a 2400-degree furnace to melt iron which he then poured into molds to make art. It was an extreme demonstration of an ancient technology that we rarely get to see. In addition to the show at Gordy, many of the castings at the Fire Up event will be on view the same evening at the Muncie Visitors Bureau at 410 S. Walnut St. in downtown Muncie. 

    Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art. Summer Invitational may also be viewed through the end of August during regular business hours: Monday through Friday, 9 am – 5:30 pm, Saturday, 10 am – 3 pm. Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company is located at 224 East Main Street, next door to Muncie Civic Theatre. For more information, visit www.gordyframing.com or call 765-284-8422.
