For me, the weekend included a visit to the Eiteljorg Museum for its exhbition of National Georgraphic photographs as well as a trek to the Phoenix Theatre for a performance of the new play "Guapa" (Great to see a packed house for a relatively unknown work).  

More on both in IBJ soon.

In the meantime, share your thoughts on the A&E that you experienced this weekend. Did you get to the Indiana State Museum for a look at the Emancipation Proclamation? Catch up on movies? Get the year off to a laugh at a comedy club? 

Your thoughts?

  • Silver Linings Playbook
    Went to see this with absolutely zero knowledge of the movie other than the title. I was really blown away at Bradley Cooper's acting -- very well done. After seeing it I looked up some critic/user reviews on IMDB just out of curiosity, and was surprised to see so many people tagging this as a 'Romantic Comedy'. I wouldn't characterize this move as a RomCom at all, and certainly would not shy away from seeing it for that reason. (This is a perfect example of why I try to remain completely ignorant about a movie before-hand, so that I can experience what the artists are trying to convey with no pre-conceptions.) When the movie ended I actually wanted to stay and watch it again, right then and there.
  • Tasha Lewis
    First Friday at Harrison Art Center led us to the opening of a great exhibit by sculptor Tasha Lewis. Tasha is a 2008 graduate of the International School of Indiana and a 2012 graduate of Swarthmore College. Terrific exhibit--worth checking out!
  • Beauty and Belief
    A stellar exhibit of Islamic art, with tons of historical, religious, mathematical and design-related context. I learned a lot. Kudos to the IMA for taking a chance with a potentially off-putting exhibit (for some folks, at least). It closes Sunday, so check it out soon.
  • Skyfall, finally
    Finally saw "Skyfall" and loved it, although the song by Adele may have been the best part.
