Your arts resolutions

Have I ever asked anything of you, loyal readers?

Well, now I am. And it's pretty simple.

Resolve right now to attend at least one more arts event in 2009 than you did in 2008. Resolve to do more if you feel up to it.

That can mean taking advantage of such free events as First Friday arts openings. It can mean taking your kids to just one more children's offering, catching one more museum exhibition or attending one more concert.

You can resolve to subscribe to a theater company. Or to attend at least one arts organization's benefit event.

Each day, this blog gets between 300 and 1500 hits. If just a small percentage of you make that resolution, it can make a difference in the arts scene here. (If you need help picking promising stuff to do, sign up for my free weekly e-mail blast here. )

State your resolution below. Inspire others.

And here's to a great 2009.
  • I vow to take an arts blowing? watercolor? cello lessons? wirewrapped jewelry? Hmmm...haven't decided yet. Will be fun, though.
  • I'm in: I resolve to attend one more arts event in 2009 than I did in 2008.

    Shall we meet back here on Lou's blog next January 1 to compare notes on how we did?

    Hope Baugh
  • My guilt is palpable... yet scintillating.

    2008 will go down as the year I re-discovered the IMA. Can't get enough! We shall see what 2009 heralds for my arts soul.
  • I'm in. My niece is a freshman at UINDY and in the Symphonic Wind Ensemble and Flute Choir. I'm keeping busy with her performances. Plus, I now know about the many arts offering there, many of which are free. What a deal.
  • I resolve to:

    - At least one show at the IRT's Upper Stage
    - At least one show at the Phoenix Theatre
    - At least one Footlite Musical show (since we live so close!)
    - At least one movie at the TOBY
    - At least one summer movie at the IMA
    - Renew memberships to the Zoo and the IMA

    and to purchase more art at the wonderful art shows (Broad Ripple, Talbott Street, and Penrod).
  • I made my budget for 2009 and decided to take my annual NYC travel budget and spend it on more local productions instead. I plan to renew seasons for the Broadway Across America series, Beef & Boards, and Civic Theatre. I also plan to catch a few shows at the American Cabaret Theatre. And when I find something to catch my eye, I will check out at least 1-2 new venues in 2009.

    Also, in 2009, I plan to take my sister-in-law to see Annie and maybe one other children's production and a trip to the Zoo.
