On Nov 18, 2020 I went to Muncie, Indiana and visited Minnetrista going to the Bob Ross Experience.  It is well worth your time to go there if you can.  The people there are nice and the exhibit is superb.  Here are some photos from the exhibit.

This one is of a giant brush in the enterance

Paintings where future paintings from shows would have been kept.  These were done by CRI's who put personal stories on the back.  They can be handled.

Going there was amazing and if you get the chance I would highly recommend it.  There is also a another exhibit running until Aug 31 2021 in Oakhurst the house next door, that is very good, with more Bob Ross paintings on display.  I believe both exhibits cost 15 dollars and are well worth it.  They hope to expand the experience upstairs where the studio is to include a gallery and a place for visitors to paint.

While I was there an NBC news crew was there covering the experience and interviewed Jim Needham the manager of the PBS station while Bob was there and friend of Bob Ross.  I was also interviewed which was fun and quite a surprise.

Thank you for reading this article it is rather long and if you are in Muncie, I highly recommend Concannon's bakery for great food and treats.
