David Owsley Museum of Art Ball State University

The David Owsley Museum of Art is an art museum located in the Fine Arts building on the campus of Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, USA. The museum's name was changed on October 6, 2011 from the Ball State Museum of Art to the David Owsley Museum of Art in honor of David Owsley, grandson of Frank C. Ball, to recognize his donations of $5 million and over 2,300 art pieces. Since departments within the Fine Arts Building relocated to other areas on Ball State's campus, the museum is using the contribution to renovate the empty classrooms and expand their galleries, beginning in early-mid-2012 and finishing in 2013. The museum is home to approximately 11,000 works. It is one of only four Indiana art museums with an encyclopedic, world art collection.
