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. I keep wondering why I keep hearing about this problem of corporations leaving America, and I never hear a reasonable proposal to lower corporate tax rates and raise personal rates on income from capital gains and dividends, especially for high earners. It is just too simple of a solution for Congress to embrace?

    3. is a disaster. SR37 already needs to be built to interstate standards between 465 and SR144. Southport Road is a mess each morning and evening.

    4. Bass Pro Shops would be good for the mall as well as a Giant Eagle Market District or a Jungle Jim's International Market Place grocery store like the one near Cincinnati Ohio.A Disney quest indoor theme park would be good.An Academy outdoor store would be good too.Indoor Circus shows and magic shows would be good as well. A casino with sports bar would be good.A Disney theater inside that shows movies and Broadway shows would work.Nashville Tennessee concert shops with indoor neon lights would be good.How about a theater that shows travel shows and theme parks. A train store would be good.How about a giant toy store with high tech video games.

    5. This development is in addition to Allpoints Midwest 5, Aitrtek, a recent FedEx and more in Plainfield. Greenwood and Brownsburg also have similar projects.
