Indianapolis Business Journal

NOV. 1-7, 2019

In this week's issue, Anthony Schoettle has the backstory behind Shining a Light on Indianapolis, a multimillion-dollar light, sound and video show designed for Monument Circle that will play nightly beginning Nov. 9.

And we have one last look at the positions of Indianapolis mayoral candidates Joe Hogsett and Jim Merritt before Election Day.
