Indiana Comic Con
Sure, you could line up to by an $80 autograph and photo from Val Kilmer. Or you can split that and spend $40 on the same from Nichelle Nichols and another $40 with Cary Elwes. Or you can pass on the celebrities and, instead, visit writing workshops, hear panel of comic book artists, take a belly dancing class, learn about the science behind science fiction, search for your match at nerdy speed dating, or, I kid you not, participate in a game of archery tag.

The Crossroads Project
It’s tough to recall another project whose development involved a string quartet, a visual artist and a physicist. But that’s the case with “The Crossroads Project,” being presented by the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute. A combination of science and performance, it’s the brainchild of composer Laura Kaminsky and painter Rebecca Allen and consists of soliloquies, music and projected visuals.

A.J. Foyt exhibit
A field of about 36 cars will be in position at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but this isn’t your standard Indy 500 lineup. In this case, all of the cars were driven by racing legend A.J. Foyt. The cars will be supplemented by memorabilia, much of it from Foyt’s personal collection. Opening April 15 Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum Details
