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, therapy dogs, henna tattoos, games, and a great chance to explore the galleries.

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
