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. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
