On The Beat Industry News In Brief

The Carmel Performing Arts Foundation has appointed its first independent board members, Rollin Dick and Rosemary Waters.

Dick, appointed president of the board, is a venture capitalist who lives in Zionsville. He’s also an Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra board member and has volunteered with the Indianapolis Civic Theatre and Indiana Repertory Theatre.

Waters, who lives in Carmel, works as the business manager for Paxton Waters Architecture and is president of the Carmel International Arts Festival. She is also on the executive board of the Carmel Arts Council.

Dick and Waters will join two city of Carmel employees, Nancy Heck and Doug Haney, on the board, which could grow to 25 members. Mayor James Brainard has stepped down.

The foundation was set up to operate the new Regional Performing Arts Center, which is under construction and expected to be finished in late 2010.

Dick said the board will announce new members as they’re appointed. The board recently hired Executive Director Steven Libman. One of its primary tasks will be raising money for a $3 million operating budget.

Dick said he feels confident about fund-raising prospects. “I obviously think the outlook is pretty good, or I wouldn’t have joined.”

The Stutz Artists Association has named Lydia Burris and Patrick Flaherty, both 29, as the 2009-2010 residents. They’ll occupy their studios in October. Each space is valued at $6,000.

“The cool thing about it is, it’s in the community of the Stutz,” said Burris, who currently works out of her home near Broad Ripple.

The residency program began in 1996 and has provided $102,000 in studio space to 17 local artists. It’s funded by proceeds from the artist association’s annual open house. The next Stutz Studio Open House will be April 23-24, 2010.

  1. why oh why does this state continue to elect these people....do you wonder how much was graft out of the 3.8 billion?

  2. i too think this is a great idea. I think the vision and need is there as well. But also agree with Wendy that there may be better location in our city to fulfill this vision and help grow the sports of hockey and figure skating in Indy. Also to help further develop other parts of the city that seem often forgotten. Any of the other 6 townships out side of the three northernmost could benefit greatly from a facility and a vision like this. For a vision that sounds philanthropic, the location is appears more about the money. Would really like to see it elsewhere, but still wish the development the best of luck, as we can always use more ice in the city. As for the Ice growth when they return, if schedules can be coordinated with the Fuel, what could be better than to have high level hockey available to go see every weekend of the season? Good luck with the development and the return of the Ice.

  3. How many parking spaces do they have at Ironworks? Will residents have reserved spaces or will they have to troll for a space among the people that are there at Ruth Chris & Sangiovese?

  4. You do not get speeding ticket first time you speed and this is not first time Mr.Page has speed. One act should not define a man and this one act won't. He got off with a slap on the wrist. I agree with judge no person was injured by his actions. The state was robbed of money by paying too much rent for a building and that money could have been used for social services. The Page family maybe "generous" with their money but for most part all of it is dirty money that he obtained for sources that are not on the upright. Page is the kind of lawyer that gives lawyers a bad name. He paid off this judge like he has many other tine and walked away. Does he still have his license. I believe so. Hire him to get you confiscated drug money back. He will. It will cost you.

  5. I remain amazed at the level of expertise of the average Internet Television Executive. Obviously they have all the answers and know the business inside and out.
