The Bob Ross Experience – at Minnetrista – GRAND OPENING

October 31, 2020


Bob Ross inspired generations of viewers with his soft-spoken voice and a pallet knife. With its global reach, it’s hard to imagine that much of the beloved series, “The Joy of Painting,” was filmed in an unassuming television studio in Muncie, Indiana. From 1983 to 1988 Bob painted for the iconic series at WIPB-TV in the historic Lucius L. Ball home – now part of Minnetrista’s museum campus. Bob’s message of fearless creativity and his ability to reinterpret perceived mistakes as “happy little accidents” is something we want to see amplified in our world today.

We are refurbishing Bob’s former studio, bringing together objects and media from Bob’s life and career, and adding interactive experiences that will bring the “Joy of Painting” to life for visitors. The Bob Ross Experience at Minnetrista will create a space for Bob’s message to flourish.

Explore the life, philosophy, and art of the iconic American painter inside the historic home where The Joy of Painting was filmed. The immersive exhibit features original paintings and artifacts, inspiring visitors with Bob’s message of fearless creativity.

The Bob Ross Experience grand opening event is October 31, 2020!
