— The Feinstein Initiative, the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, the Indiana Historical Society, the Carmel Clay Historical Society and IUPUI’s Ruth Lilly Special Collections and Archives, working under the umbrella Integrated Exhibition Alliance, have plans to tie together concurrent exhibitions in early January. The focus will be on change in the 1960s.

— Modern Painters magazine has put the Conrad Hotel’s Long-Sharp Gallery on its list of 100 best fall art gallery exhibits in the world. Forty-two of those are in the U.S. The show opens Friday.

— Don’t look for Monument Circle to be blocked off for the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s season-opening gala. The Sept. 20 post-concert dinner is being held at the Roof Ballroom. The concert, featuring violinist Hillary Hahn, offers the first chance for ISO patrons to sample the Hilbert Circle Theatre’s new seats.

— Got a gimmick? The Pacers will be holding auditions Sept. 9 for halftime acts and other game-day positions. Pre-registration is a must or you’ll just have to put that trampoline back in the car and go home.

— John Skewes, author of the “Larry Gets Lost” children’s book series, has set his most recent one at the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. He’ll be there Friday signing copies of “Larry Gets Lost at the Museum.” Somebody get that dog a GPS.

— And, no, I won't be reviewing Sydney Leathers' new film. Stop asking.

  1. How much you wanna bet, that 70% of the jobs created there (after construction) are minimum wage? And Harvey is correct, the vast majority of residents in this project will drive to their jobs, and to think otherwise, is like Harvey says, a pipe dream. Someone working at a restaurant or retail store will not be able to afford living there. What ever happened to people who wanted to build buildings, paying for it themselves? Not a fan of these tax deals.

  2. Uh, no GeorgeP. The project is supposed to bring on 1,000 jobs and those people along with the people that will be living in the new residential will be driving to their jobs. The walkable stuff is a pipe dream. Besides, walkable is defined as having all daily necessities within 1/2 mile. That's not the case here. Never will be.

  3. Brad is on to something there. The merger of the Formula E and IndyCar Series would give IndyCar access to International markets and Formula E access the Indianapolis 500, not to mention some other events in the USA. Maybe after 2016 but before the new Dallara is rolled out for 2018. This give IndyCar two more seasons to run the DW12 and Formula E to get charged up, pun intended. Then shock the racing world, pun intended, but making the 101st Indianapolis 500 a stellar, groundbreaking event: The first all-electric Indy 500, and use that platform to promote the future of the sport.

  4. No, HarveyF, the exact opposite. Greater density and closeness to retail and everyday necessities reduces traffic. When one has to drive miles for necessities, all those cars are on the roads for many miles. When reasonable density is built, low rise in this case, in the middle of a thriving retail area, one has to drive far less, actually reducing the number of cars on the road.

  5. The Indy Star announced today the appointment of a new Beverage Reporter! So instead of insightful reports on Indy pro sports and Indiana college teams, you now get to read stories about the 432nd new brewery open or some obscure Hoosier winery winning a county fair blue ribbon. Yep, that's the coverage we Star readers crave. Not.
