Lou Harry's arts coverage is welcome, insightful

November 17, 2008
I have been a devoted reader of Lou Harry's work since his arrival in Indy, first reading his insightful columns at Arts Indiana (with some side-writing for NUVO), then at Indianapolis Monthly, and subsequently, Indy Men's Monthly. Each time Lou changed jobs, I changed subscriptions.

But when he joined IBJ, I confess to some reluctance to subscribing to a business journal. I wasn't sure I'd be interested in the journal—and I wasn't sure Lou would be given enough space to write about the arts. I was wrong on both counts. IBJ is an interesting read that has taught me a great deal about many facets of the city over the past year.

And I know I speak for many arts professionals in the city when I say that we rely on Lou's columns to know what is happening in the arts community. I read Lou's weekly printed column (wish he could write even more each week than that!) and I certainly turn to his blog to read his assessment of arts events around the region.

Informed criticism is a key component to a thriving arts community. Lou provides this invaluable service to our city. Thank you for your support of Lou's vital contribution to the arts of Indianapolis.
