Our House: Muncie Fieldhouse

As the Muncie Fieldhouse looks forward to hosting the 2020 Basketball Sectionals, we will open a photograph exhibition entitled, “Our House: Muncie Fieldhouse, a community gathering place”, Thursday February 6, 5 – 8 pm. Copies of images will be sold to benefit the Muncie Community Schools efforts to preserve the Muncie Fieldhouse and its history.

Images are drawn from the Ball State University’s Archives and Special Collections, a department of Ball State University Libraries. Additional materials are contributed by Muncie Public Library. Selected images include photographs and architectural plans that celebrate the historical importance of the Fieldhouse as a sports arena and a community gathering place for car shows, union meetings, circus events, and concerts.

Light refreshments will be served and the public is invited to attend.

At 6:15 a spirited presentation will be led by Dale Basham, former principal of Muncie Central High School.

Later at 7:30 Muncie Central varsity basketball will play Marion in the Fieldhouse.

“Dale is the perfect person to convey the spirit we all feel for the Fieldhouse and Muncie Community Schools,” said Gordy co-owner Carl Schafer. “Throughout the evening and during Dale’s presentation we will be encouraging everyone to go to the game for this important annual rivalry. “

The show will be up and images for sale during February and March. Gordy Fine Art and Framing Company promotes talented artists and offers expert design and craftsmanship for framing and displaying treasured family possessions and works of art.
