Do Hoosiers know how to collect?

*** Myspace madness and first Friday photos below, please scroll down ***

Questions have been raised (particularly in the comments section) on OtC as to the ability of Hoosiers to collect or have an impact with their provincial attitudes. So here we try to answer and address these very questions.

From an anonymous comment of an earlier post that was well written yet short-sided:

When a luxury loses it's cache, the price goes down. When the number of possible purchases goes up, the price goes down further. When a culturally important avocation loses it's importance, the public's focus fades.

Maybe true in economics but we have yet to see any indication in the contemporary art world and certainly not when the artistic work has merit. Wednesday night at iMOCA is a talk with Michelle Griffith (philanthropist and contemporary art collector) and Kathy Nagler (director of iMOCA) who will speak candidly about their collections, the impact of what they collect on their everyday lives, and a continuance of the discussion on the importance of the gallery.

iMOCA 101 is a casual discussion about relevant issues in contemporary art. This session will take place on Wednesday, November 8th from 5:30 pm until 6:30 pm and is free and open to the public.

Should anyone want to put a face with their anonymous name, please join us Wednesday night and voice your concerns.
