“Room to Roam”
In IBJ’s Innovation issue, I wrote about Indy Convergence, a creative arts group that’s interested both in pure artistic creation and community involvement. Here’s an opportunity to get to know more directly what that organization is about. This six-block art walk features performances by artists involved in this year’s program, leading participants from from Central State Mansion to Indy Convergence’s building. June 16. Beginning at Central State Mansion Details
Talbot Street Art Fair
The largest free art fair in the city attracts more than 270 artists to the Herron Morton Neighborhood. Included are a significant number of clay, glass, fiber and jewelry, so you may end up leaving with something you can either wear or display in your home without the need to put holes in your wall. Talbot St. between 16th and 20th. June 17-18 Details
