A Bob Ross inspired, permanent exhibition/masterclass has just been unveiled in the town of Muncie, Indiana. The exhibition is located on the Minnetrista campus, at the Lucius Ball House and showcases original paintings from Bob Ross. Additionally, personal items such as keys, a hair prick as well as a cascade of memorabilia from the famed artist including paint brushes, his easel and his palate knife, which visitors are welcome to touch.
The title of the Exhibition/masterclass is “Bob Ross at Home: Artist, Teacher, Friend,” and runs to August 21st, 2021. The overseer of the exhibition George Buss Sr. has this to say: “Bob Ross has an incredible, fearless creativity,” he said. “There is a confidence and a positivity that no matter how bad it looks on the canvas, it’s gonna turn out. He takes what looks like a mistake and turns it into something beautiful, and he spends the entire time telling you that what he’s doing is not special, not heroic. It’s something you can do, too. So there’s empowerment to be as powerful and as fearless as he is.”
The masterclass includes a replica of the set for “Bob Ross’ The Joy Of Painting” TV series. If you want to sign up for the masterclass, admission is $70 USD. YOu can learn more on the official site.
