Miami University Art Museum Lawn Party

Each Fall, the Miami University Art Museum hosts a party on our lawn and in our galleries to welcome students and celebrate the release of our fall exhibitions. The party includes plenty of refreshments (Kona Ice, Chips/Cookies/Water and more), Tshirts, therapy dogs, games, and a great chance to explore the galleries. [*First 150 students]

Winter Reception

Our Winter Reception is new to MUAM but has proven to be a hit. Students typically dress in semi-formal attire and enjoy an upscale evening of live music, hors d'oeuvres, and fun.

Past Winter Receptions included

  • photo booth and props
  • build-your-own hot cocoa station
  • live music from two campus groups
  • ARTZOOM contest
