Why is the room - and that vase - spinning?

New on the Indianapolis Art Center lineup of classes: Clay & Cocktails, a series of Friday night classes at which participants can get their drink on while going hands-on at the pottery wheel.

It's an effort to appeal to the ever-so-attractive younger (but not below-legal-drinking-age young) demo. More info on the classes here.

So do you think this will appeal? And what are some other ideas you can think of for arts organization to attract those coveted and elusive young professionals?

Your thoughts?

Oh, and remember, friends don't let friends spin drunk.

  • love it!
    I love this idea! As a young professional living in Indianapolis, I enjoy taking advantage of all the special programming nonprofits all over the city have started offering. The ISO may have the biggest event around in Happy Hour, but the IRT, Eiteljorg, WFYI and others have stepped up to the plate as well. It's nice to have a reason to check out an organization and get involved. Good work, Indy arts!
  • May Not Be Legal
    The venues mentioned by Lauren have either an on-premise license or use licensed caterers. The Art Center staff should make sure serving spirits there is legal. May need either an on-premise permit or use a caterer with a permit. Can't imagine a pottery class would be worth doing that, whereas the other events are big enough to do so.

    • The Art Center's Legal
      Thanks for your comment about permits. The Art Center serves wine at this sampler pottery class and makes sure it's in compliance with laws regarding serving alcohol.
    • SIgn me up!
      I think this is a great idea. I will definitely try out a class!

    1. The deductible is entirely paid by the POWER account. No one ever has to contribute more than $25/month into the POWER account and it is often less. The only cost not paid out of the POWER account is the ER copay ($8-25) for non-emergent use of the ER. And under HIP 2.0, if a member calls the toll-free, 24 hour nurse line, and the nurse tells them to go to the ER, the copay is waived. It's also waived if the member is admitted to the hospital. Honestly, although it is certainly not "free" - I think Indiana has created a decent plan for the currently uninsured. Also consider that if a member obtains preventive care, she can lower her monthly contribution for the next year. Non-profits may pay up to 75% of the contribution on behalf of the member, and the member's employer may pay up to 50% of the contribution.

    2. I wonder if the governor could multi-task and talk to CMS about helping Indiana get our state based exchange going so Hoosiers don't lose subsidy if the court decision holds. One option I've seen is for states to contract with healthcare.gov. Or maybe Indiana isn't really interested in healthcare insurance coverage for Hoosiers.

    3. So, how much did either of YOU contribute? HGH Thank you Mr. Ozdemir for your investments in this city and your contribution to the arts.

    4. So heres brilliant planning for you...build a $30 M sports complex with tax dollars, yet send all the hotel tax revenue to Carmel and Fishers. Westfield will unlikely never see a payback but the hotel "centers" of Carmel and Fishers will get rich. Lousy strategy Andy Cook!

    5. AlanB, this is how it works...A corporate welfare queen makes a tiny contribution to the arts and gets tons of positive media from outlets like the IBJ. In turn, they are more easily to get their 10s of millions of dollars of corporate welfare (ironically from the same people who are against welfare for humans).
