Got a little time? And some interest in the future of the arts in Indianapolis?

Sit back and watch IBJ's arts funding roundtable. Your thoughts, of course, are most welcome.

  • Lou - This is really interesting. Thanks for facilitating. Is this part of a series?
  • Not part of a series, exactly, but we hope to be doing more video in the future.

    Feedback and suggestions are most welcome.

  • Excellent discussion. Thanks.
  • Thank you for putting this discussion together. Could Frank Basile be any cuter? Seriously though, these dialogues are so important to have! I hope the IBJ will continue this concept...there is definitely an audience for it.
  • Interesting discussion, but more one-sided than I would have expected from an IBJ presentation. It was like one of the panelists said: We expected everyone at the table to say what they said. A moderated debate that could help arts organizations answer such questions as why they are as worthy of funding as sports organizations, why museums don't offer more popular exhibitions to drive larger numbers of visitors, why CEOs don't put their organizations' money and muscle behind arts organizations the way they do behind sports teams ... that kind of discussion would be more valuable. Maybe that's what you have in mind for the next one?
  • Whew.... Perhaps the IMA could start screening the Flinstones The Art Of Hanna Barbara. Or maybe they could just display a series old Colts Jerseys.

    Thanks for this Video Lou.... Awesome. Brian ran-a-home-run-basket-touch-down with his idea about location based surcharges.

  1. So much for Eric Holder's conversation about race. If white people have got something to say, they get sued over it. Bottom line: white people have un-freer speech than others as a consequence of the misnamed "Civil rights laws."

  2. I agree, having seen three shows, that I was less than wowed. Disappointing!!

  3. Start drilling, start fracking, and start using our own energy. Other states have enriched their citizens and nearly elminated unemployment by using these resources that are on private land. If you are against the 'low prices' of discount stores, the best way to allow shoppers more choice is to empower them with better earnings. NOT through manipulated gov mandated min wage hikes, but better jobs and higher competitive pay. This would be direct result of using our own energy resources, yet Obama knows that Americans who arent dependent of gov welfare are much less likely to vote Dem, so he looks for ways to ensure America's decline and keep its citizens dependent of gov.

  4. Say It Loud, I'm Black and Ashamed: It's too bad that with certain "black" entertainment events, it seems violence and thuggery follows and the collateral damage that it leaves behinds continues to be a strain on the city in terms of people getting hurt, killed or becoming victims of crimes and/or stretching city resources. I remember shopping in the Meadows area years ago until violence and crime ended make most of the business pack you and leave as did with Lafayette Square and Washington Square. Over the past 10 to 12 years, I remember going to the Indiana Black Expo Soul Picnic in Washington Park. Violence, gang fights and homicides ended that. My great grandmother still bears the scares on her leg from when she was trampled by a group of thugs running from gun fire from a rival gang. With hundreds of police offices downtown still multiple shootings, people getting shot downtown during Black Expo. A number of people getting shots or murdered at black clubs around the city like Club Six on the west side, The Industry downtown, Jamal Tinsley's shot out in front of the Conrad, multiple fights and shootings at the skating rinks, shootings at Circle Center Mall and shooting and robberies and car jackings at Lafayette Mall. Shootings and gang violence and the State Fair. I can go on and on and on. Now Broad Ripple. (Shaking head side to side) Say It Loud, I'm Black and I'm Ashamed.

  5. Ballard Administration. Too funny. This is the least fiscally responsive administration I have ever seen. One thing this article failed to mention, is that the Hoosier State line delivers rail cars to the Amtrak Beech Grove maintenance facility for refurbishment. That's an economic development issue. And the jobs there are high-paying. That alone is worth the City's investment.
