Bob Ross Experience

Bob Ross Experience

Bob Ross Experience

From an unassuming public television studio in Muncie, IN, Bob Ross inspired generations of viewers with his soft-spoken voice and pallet knife. While “The Joy of Painting” is popular around the world, many people do not realize much of the series was filmed in the historic L.L. Ball home on Minnetrista’s campus.
Minnetrista is excited to have the “Bob Ross Experience” coming to his former studio. His studio will be open for painting and workshops. There will also be chance to experience his many beautiful paintings. In Bob’s own words, “Beauty is everywhere-you only have to look to see it”.

For ticket information for the Bob Ross Experience visit: https://www.minnetrista.net/bobrossexperience

Experience a small tropical environment in the middle of Indiana! With over 2,000 orchids, the Rinard Orchid Greenhouse contains the largest university-based orchid collection in the United States, including the Wheeler-Thanhauser Orchid Collection and Species Bank, and Betty Kendall Ladyslipper Orchid Species Collection.  The collection is a living museum which provides opportunities for education and conservation of rare and endangered orchid species and is used for orchid research.  The collection also provides opportunities for students and visitors to learn about a diversity of tropical species.  Students, faculty, local schools, community, and visitors can see and learn about orchids, edible tropical plants, poison arrow frogs, birds and other tropical creatures that are on display in a small tropical conservatory.

The 3,400-square-foot greenhouse is a resource used by students in biology, natural resources, art, technology, landscape architecture, and photography and presents a variety of educational programs open to the general public.  Docents assist visitors during guided tours.  Programs include weekly meditation, brown-bag lunch, Saturday programs, mini-educational programs, walk-in tours and guided tours by request.

Even in winter, the Rinard Conservatory  is always in full bloom. Changing educational displays, student art exhibits, and other seasonal features make the Rinard conservatory  and Orchid Greenhouse a great place to visit throughout the year.
